Building Understanding & Competence
Rising Leaders Academy focuses heavily on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM education seeks to create 21st-century learning skills for students. STEM is a national initiative at the high school level, trickling down to only a handful of elementary and middle schools. RLA’s unique implementation is called Expeditionary STEM Education, where we use Expeditionary Learning, as well as STEM curriculum-based learning.
RLA IS AN AFFILIATE MEMBER OF THE STEM EDUCATION COALITION
Rising Leaders Academy provides rigorous, authentic integrated instruction in science, technology, engineering, and math in order to build student understanding and competence in these areas and prepare students for advanced studies in STEM. Students will be exposed to current technology and engaged in the curriculum through appropriate applications of technology. They will meet and exceed state standards in Math and Science by applying these concepts.
