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 Genesis powHers a Brighter Future for Our Young Ladies

Girls Become Confident, Accomplished Young Women

The PowHER program is a partnership between Genesis Innovation Academy, The Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids, Maria Taylor of NBC Sports, and Wells Fargo Financial Services.  The program seeks to create unique, interactive educational experiences that inspire our girls to dream big. Those experiences are focused on three areas: interaction with women executives and leaders, exposure to professional opportunities, and financial literacy.

Mentoring Boys into Young Men

We Transform Boy Energy into Excellence, Character, and Integrity

Men make up more than 50% of our Boys Academy staff – an extremely rare fact in education. By surrounding our boys with mature, committed men who understand them, Genesis is in the best position to lead our boys to the success that all parents hope for.

At Genesis Innovation Academy, a free public charter school, we teach subjects that matter for 21st century success.

Economics

Our scholars become empowered to master money and build wealth. By learning about investment, wealth, and markets, scholars come to understand how economic motives shape history and current events and how to solve real-world economics and finance problems.

Engineering

Now more than ever, we need innovative solutions to complex, real-world issues. Genesis scholars learn how to engineer technological solutions using concepts taught in our Applied Math, Applied Science, Computing, and Engineering courses.

Ethics

Our scholars study diverse literature, religion and philosophy, and arts – exposing them to different ideas of right and wrong, how those ideas shape the world, and how their own ideas can re-shape their world. Scholars learn to think critically about how individual choices, and ideas about what is “right”, impact the larger world.

Expression

Every scholar has a talent, a gift, or an idea to offer the world. Genesis scholars will engage with many forms of art, including Language Arts, Music, Visual and Performing Arts as they learn to communicate ideas in meaningful, constructive, and impactful ways.

Entrepreneurship

Scholars are challenged to generate ground breaking ideas and make those ideas come to life. They learn how to create products and build businesses instead of just consuming products; ultimately, they will learn to be job creators instead of job takers.

Why our Scholars Begin Early

Coding Begins in Kindergarten

The proven benefits coding offers for youngsters five and up include: helping them learn by doing, improving critical thinking, sharpening problem-solving skills, making math fun and easier to visualize, and nurturing creativity.

Coding also acts a powerfully engaging tool to help children develop their understanding of concrete operations (like how to combine, separate, order, and transform objects and actions). As a result, scholars better understand math, language structure, and many other critical thinking areas.

We want scholars on the path to developing these traits early, so we start coding early. We want our scholars to build tangible things, ignite their creativity, and innovate as they learn…coding does all this and much more.

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.

Academics

Student Focused

Genesis firmly believes that classrooms should be geared toward what and how students learn. Our strategy is a child-centered pedagogical approach.
