Innovation In Education
Genuine Academy, Inc is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit created to aid in the academic development of at-risk youth in under-served communities. After operating as a youth mentor program for the past 2 years, we've expanded into a full-time high school for the 2019-2020 school year. Our three areas of focus are academic enrichment, social engagement, and community development.
We have partnered with Ash Academy, located in Conyers, GA, which currently provides schooling to children in grades 6th - 8th. Genuine Academy will further the students education beyond middle school for grades 9th- 12th.
Along with our unique STEM program, we utilize a customized curriculum along with progressive teaching techniques. Our goal is to teach students the importance of character development, financial literacy, communication and entrepreneurship. In addition, the eye-catching uniform of our team members contain acronym-based slogans that are used to promote student attendance and academic achievement.
Last, but certainly not least, our community outreach events span across a wide variety of topics such as autism awareness, breast cancer, childhood obesity, and teen suicide. Throughout the year, we host several events to raise awareness and provide students at our school hands-on experience in serving the community. Doing so creates an opportunity to forge amazing partnerships with other organizations and leave a lasting impact on the individuals we help.
The mission of Genuine Academy, Inc. is to use an innovative curriculum and progressive teaching techniques, among 9th through 12th grade students to promote academic enrichment, social engagement, and community development. We'll provide a platform for students to explore their creativity and develop a sense of purpose by tailoring the curriculum to fit the student’s specific needs.
After leaving the institution, students will be prepared for post-secondary school and equipped with the necessary life skills to excel as productive leaders in society. Providing a program that makes the learning environment engaging will benefit the student, parents, as well as teachers involved, thus creating a sense of unity within the community.
