Since 1999, Academica has been a leader in developing and maximizing human potential. Their unmatched community of charter schools, digital learning communities, colleges and non-profit organizations support individuals through school, college, career and beyond. 

We’re very excited to work with Academica as we build partnerships across the state of Florida. In coordination with Academica, we’ll be opening three new charter schools in Florida in the 2024-25 school year. Like our existing academies, these schools will focus on pairing practical, project based learning with real world experiences and opportunities.

Academica’s focus on innovation and performance lines up nicely with our emphasis on student-driven, active learning. We’re working closely with Academica’s leadership to expand our collaboration to schools in Nevada, Iowa, Arizona, Texas and beyond. We believe this expanding network will help students across the country become more engaged in their learning and expand their career opportunities.
