Our vision is to develop students who are equipped to be well-rounded, ethical leaders with a foundation based on science and technology. We enable our students to explore and pursue their passions by integrating inquiry-based science and forward thinking technology with the Core Knowledge Sequence. We focus on Every Child, through smaller class sizes, individualized learning, supportive teachers invested in their students, and our partnership with parents. Our students develop a lifelong love of learning, and thrive in our academically diverse student population.
Flagstaff Academy has two Technology Labs, one for Kindergarten and Elementary grades, and one for the Middle School. Each lab is equipped with 30 internet-enabled computers and a robust suite of software applications. Large touchscreens are used in every classroom, as well as in the Library Media Center. In addition, our Middle School has a 1:1 Chromebook program, as well as in fifth grade. Our mobile Chromebook carts bring technology into any classroom throughout the building.
Elementary students learn basic computer literacy using a broad collection of activities and lessons targeted at young learners, including the parts of the computer, keyboarding, internet safety, drawing, math and a variety of other PC-based lessons. We are proud to have a dedicated Innnovations Teacher, who will be teaching engineering, programming, coding, and computer science in both Elementary and Middle School.
Flagstaff Academy students and teachers work collaboratively using Google's cloud-based technology. Students receive instant feedback on projects and assignments.
The Technology Lab for Middle School students builds on the skills learned in the early grades, enabling the students to take on more sophisticated projects. Flagstaff Academy has been a long-standing member of Project Lead the Way (Project Lead the Way website) where students are exposed to engineering concepts such as Space & Flight, Circuits and Electrical Engineering, Robotics, Green Energy Systems, Architecture, and 2D and 3D Modeling and Design (CAD). Our middle school computer programming courses prepare our students for success in high school and beyond. Several of our alumni are now working in the computer science industry with companies such as Google.
In all grades, Technology Lab lessons at Flagstaff are developed through collaboration between the technology teachers and the classroom teachers. This approach creates links between the topics the students are covering in their classrooms and the topics they work on in the tech labs.
