Our mission is to recapture the joy of learning. Every day. Every learner.

Knowledge Academies is a network of public schools for families, committed to leading a robust network of community partners in support of personalized learning. Their design places a heavy emphasis on academic, social emotional, college access, fitness, and wellness programming. Students and families are at the center of their design, focused on continuously connecting life to learning. They place a heavy emphasis on life-based learning experiences and off-campus learning that allow students, teachers, and families to develop and reinforce stronger personal connections. Working in collaboration with a network of over 20 community partners, their team is serving as a new anchor for their surrounding community for programming focused on fitness & wellness, social work, academics, digital literacy.
