THRIVE Academy, our network's second elementary school, prepares scholars for college from the first day of kindergarten. We focus on empowering our scholars to be life-long learners and optimists through values lessons, service learning trips, social justice classes and providing them with ample opportunities to learn through the arts and sciences. Students receive special classes in art, music, science, Spanish as well as all of theretheir core subjects because we believe this creates well-rounded, life-long learners who are prepared to succeed in college and in life.
