Our Approach

At Inspire Academy, we utilize the EL Education curriculum, which leverages a child’s natural curiosity and sense of adventure. Through interactive and inquiry-based lessons we are able to reach students in a more thoughtful manner and excite them about their educational possibilities. At Inspire, students are leaders of their own learning.

Our responsibility to our students is to ensure that when they leave Inspire Academy that they will be judged not by a test result, but rather by the quality of their work and the quality of their character. This approach is what truly sets Inspire Academy apart. To achieve this, we focus on instilling student excellence in three equally important areas:

Students complete regular course work through 9 – 18 week expeditions that allow them to combine different subjects (science, social studies, language arts, etc.) to become experts on a topic of study.  Our asset-based, localized expeditions engage students’ natural curiosity and desire for justice to motivate them to seek answers and proposals that contribute to a better world.

Inspire Academy provides our students an exciting place to learn, where new ideas are welcomed and a child’s natural inclination towards curiosity, discovery and adventure are appreciated and encouraged. Our students are inspired to think critically and to take an active role in their classrooms and communities. This leads to higher achievement and greater engagement in school.

Most importantly, we prepare students to compete on a global level and instill within them a desire to become lifelong learners. Inspire Academy is open to all Indiana residents and is committed to targetting students who are not realized their full potential in the traditional classroom setting.
