Dare To Dream Big.
Envision Academy is a strengths-based, Christ-centered elementary school working to open in North Omaha.
Strengths-based education that sees each child uniquely and holistically.
Envision Academy will provide exceptional education through an innovative, unique learning environment which celebrates the strengths of each individual. We will empower our students to become independent thinkers, confident collaborators, and lifelong learners who are in pursuit of their God-given purpose.
The Current State Of Education
ONE-SIZE FITS ALL APPROACH
All children are expected to learn at the same speed in every subject area as well as socially and emotionally.
OVEREMPHASIS ON TESTING
Testing has become the ultimate measure of success. It causes stress for everyone involved.
TOO MUCH TIME INDOORS
Children spend less time outside each day than in the past.
Many educators are leaving the field because of burnout and lack of autonomy.
Curriculum is becoming more scripted, taking creativity away from teachers and students.
ONE FACET FOCUS
Schools feel pressure to raise scores resulting in the focus on one facet of learning rather than holistic growth.
A word from our Executive Director
Hello! I’m Christin, the director of Envision Academy. I am honored to be a part of this dream for a different kind of school. At Envision Academy, there are several things we emphasize:
Christ — We believe that Jesus provides true hope. Following him includes loving God, loving others, and pursuing justice.
Strengths — Each of us have unique strengths. One goal of Envision Academy is helping our students discover their strengths and how to use them to help themselves and others.
Collaboration — One vital skill in today’s world is learning to work well with others. We will give our students opportunities to thoughtfully and diligently work together.
Lifelong Learning — There is always more to learn. We will empower our students to learn well with the skills of discernment, persistence, and critical thinking.
I would love to tell you more!
The Current State Of Education
We help each student along their unique educatinal path. This includes multi-age classrooms and some choice in what is learned.
Testing as a Tool
Testing is a valuable tool that can help guide teachers. It provides useful data alongside other types of assessments.
Utilizing the Outdoors
Time outside is beneficial in so many ways. It helps our brains reset and provides learning opportunities. As the weather allows, we will spend an hour outside each day.
Multiple Teachers Per Classroom
Two certified teachers will be in each classroom. This will provide flexibility with instruction and support for social and emotional learning.
FLEXIBLE AND CREATIVE CURRICULUM
Our educational model is a unique blend of curriculum, electives, and time for play. We work hard to instill a love for learning in each student.
EDUCATING THE WHOLE CHILD
We believe every facet of a person is equally important. We seek to help each child grow in each area: intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual.
