ABOUT HIGHLAND ACADEMY CHARTER SCHOOL
Competency through individual learning
Highland Academy recognizes that students' different learning needs, family backgrounds and personal interests require individually designed educational programs.
Project Based Studies
Students learn by actively solving problems and finding that each task may have more than one solution.
Students learn how personal ethics relate to moral codes, as well as building responsibility, leadership, integrity, and teamwork.
Classes are small and accommodate individualized assessments of the full range of each student's achievements.
Each student has an advisor with whom they can meet to address important personal, social, future career, and education issues.
