UP Academy was born of my quest to find the best education for my three children. My oldest, intuitive, curious and differently-abled with cerebral palsy, my middle, ambitious, fearless and creative and my youngest, observant, sweet, and athletic and all three of them brilliant (but every parent says that right?)
What’s exciting about UP Academy is that it fuses the best of the one-room schoolhouse model with today’s technology allowing for student driven curriculum that has boundless possibilities! Our team is dedicated to creating fun, vibrant lessons where students have the opportunity to launch investigations into their subject matter and actively engage in their learning. Our philosophy of teaching exciting content in context extends to providing opportunities and therapies to our differently abled students! Support is provided where needed in the context of everyday school life to provide 100% involvement in learning and motivation to do their physical work throughout the day. Our programs include: Spanish, Mandarin, Coding, Gardening, Cooking, Making, Tinkering, Art, Music and all the traditional academics in a project based learning environment. Kids learn by doing.
Join our team and run for UP Academy. With every mile and every dollar you will be helping children grow to be kind, be strong and value doing their best. By being a part of our team you agree to raise a minimum of $500. You will get an UP Academy shirt, a 1/2 hour consultation with a personal trainer and a spot in the inaugural Virgin Sport 1/2 Marathon on October 15.
You may also run a virtual race. Join our fundraiser, raise $500, get all the goodies and run on your own turf; share on our social media sites to get lots of love.
