About

“No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of the child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.” — Emma Goldman

Mission

REACH Leadership STEAM Academy is a college preparatory elementary school which is dedicated to bridging the socioeconomic, racial, and digital divide for underserved youth. Our dedicated and highly trained teaching staff is committed to preparing our students for success in college and equipping them to meet the demands of a global society. We are committed to developing confident, articulate leaders who will use their life experiences and education to create positive changes in their own lives and within their communities and beyond.

Central to our mission is the unwavering belief that if given the proper tools, all students can succeed in school and in the most competitive colleges and universities. REACH believes that all students must be prepared for higher education and equipped with the skills and the choice to pursue it at the highest levels.

Vision

As a nurturing learning community, REACH Leadership STEAM Academy (REACH) cultivates and empowers global-literate students who have the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and attitudes to become influential contributors in an ever-changing global society. REACH believes in a student-centered approach to learning that encourages all students to become compassionate, innovative, and intelligent thinkers who are knowledgeable about themselves and the world around them. To prepare students for success in competitive four-year colleges and universities, REACH has created a focused learning environment that cultivates students’ characters and academic skills.

STEAM

STEAMOver 80% of the jobs created in the next decade will require a strong Math and Science background (National Science Foundation, 2011).  STEM integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics across curricula.  It engages students with project-based learning, encourages them to solve authentic problems, asks them to work collaboratively with others to build real solutions, teaches higher-order  thinking skills, and builds life-long learners.  Students in STEM programs significantly outperform others in Math and Science on standardize state tests (Satchwell & Loepp, 2002).

STEAM = STEM + the Arts. STEAM is the framework in which REACH approaches learning. REACH provides a well-balanced education with an increased focus in the areas of science, technology, engineering, art, & mathematics.  Our goal is to heighten awareness of STEAM fields and stimulate student interest in pursuing STEM + Art related fields in high school, college, and beyond.

What are Charter Schools?

Charter Schools are K-12 public schools of choice that are held to high standards of accountability in exchange for operational autonomy, flexibility, and innovation. Charters are independent organizations which are publicly funded. Students attend school free of charge.
