Scholars have standout performances at Moot Court
Middle School Sweeps Awards
"On Friday, March 4th the Genesis Innovation Academy Middle School and High School Moot Court Teams represented the school exceptionally well during the Young Litigators Project (YLP) Moot Court Competition.
The Middle School Team did an amazing job by earning a clean sweep of awards. The Middle School team was awarded Best Overall Team, Best Brief, and Solomon Nixon was awarded Best Advocator.
The High School Team did an amazing job as well. We are truly proud of our scholars as they worked extremely hard to prepare for this event. The Young Litigators Project recruits attorneys and law students to work with the teams and educate them on the law and the appellate procedures. Each Spring, YLP hosts a Moot Court competition. The attorneys and law students help the teams understand the fact pattern, how to analyze statues and case law, guides them on how to write a brief on the issue, and prepare them for oral argument.
Hear From Parents
Great school my son has been here since 6th grade he is now a 9th grader. The smaller school and more personal learning environment has helped him succeed and the innovative approach wth the separate boys and girls school is a big plus
I love Genesis. The small classroom sizes, E⁵ curriculum and project-based learning are my favorite aspects of our curriculum model -- not to mention the strong sense of community! Definitely a special place.
Our girls feel supported and have made great friends. The parents voices are heard and the admin is responsive to input.
Genesis is an great school with very supportive goals and culture. It stays true to its name with efforts to be innovative.
Many families have expressed how lucky they have been to find this school now and I can't agree more as an educator myself.
I have recommended this school as an option for many friends and families because of its commitment to take care of everyone...
The teachers really challenge and deliver rigorous lessons/Curriculum that is appropriate to the level of learning, as well as pushing to learn and develop even more cognitively.
All I can say about Genesis Innovation Academy is this was the best choice of a school for my children, the administration, staff, and teachers are amazing in all they they do for these children they go above and beyond to ensure all children have what they need.
The Administration is in tune with the learning process as well and makes sure that the environment is conducive to sound learning each and every day, in person as well as virtual.
How We Teach
Why Single Gender?
Research tells us that girls are far behind in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields. Research also shows that boys are in crisis in almost every academic area. To be truly student-centered, we have developed strategies and programs to deliver our curriculum in a way that addresses the unique needs and issues of both girls and boys.
Our E5 Curriculum in Action
Our Scholar Work Showcase celebrates the outstanding work our scholars have been creating. Our student-focused model encourages creativity and our E5 Core includes Ethics, Engineering, Economics, Expression and Entrepreneurship. These focus areas help scholars apply everything they're learning in innovative and inspiring ways. Check it out!
Genesis firmly believes that classrooms should be geared toward what and how students learn. Our strategy is a child-centered pedagogical approach.
At Genesis Innovation Academy, a free public charter school, we teach subjects that matter for 21st century success.
