Engaging, dynamic, middle school curriculum with traditional academic rigor as well as hands on PBL inspired learning.
Elevation Academy focuses on rigorous academic basics in the Language Arts as well as a renewed focus on STEAM ( Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) skills to prepare students for High School and beyond while we ground everything in Biblical Foundations ! Students are invited to explore God’s world and discover the full joy of a life committed to following Christ as Savior and to fully develop their own unique potentials in order to impact this world for Him. We have a unique program that utilizes mornings of rigorous traditional Math and Language Arts with afternoons modelled on principles derived from Project Based Learning and integrated subjects ( including History and Science, Art and Music, Bible) where students take more ownership of learning with hands on STEAM inspired units of investigation.
To accomplish our mission as mentioned we organize our small school into multi-grade classes that focus on academic basics in the mornings. Then, afternoons are arranged around interdisciplinary, real world connected, PBL inspired lessons that allow students to exercise their growing capabilities and interests while expanding their knowledge and understanding in Lander’s unique and exciting Rocky Mountain location. Additionally, certain afternoons are used for Chapel, music and PE. A new focus this year will be to once again utilize Lander’s rich community and it’s resources by making strong connections to local organizations which are diverse, knowledgeable and excited to partner with us in bringing great opportunities to Lander’s Youth. Many local evangelical pastors bless our students during the weekly Chapel sessions and students are aoften excited to get a visit from their very own pastors.
