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!
increasing confidence to leave their mark
powHerful Mentors for Girls
How do we inspire our female scholars to make their own mark on the world?
We build up their confidence by demonstrating how female leaders across many fields made their mark. We provide in-person introductions, interactions, and collaborations with top local female leaders. We encourage our young ladies to develop their own stories of what they will become. We help them increase their financial literacy, with projects that include building stock portfolios and reviewing company balance sheets.
Our special partnership with powHer offers all these experiences and more. Under the guidance of ESPN host Maria Taylor, and partnering with the Garth Brooks Foundation and Morgan Stanley, our scholars are increasing the resolve and understanding they need to achieve their dreams.
Genesis firmly believes that classrooms should be geared toward what and how students learn. Our strategy is a child-centered pedagogical approach.
Why our Scholars Begin Early
Coding 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 as a powerful and 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.
At Genesis Innovation Academy, a free public charter school, we teach subjects that matter for 21st century success.
