2020 - 2021 Microschool
Parents, have you wondered if the uncertainty surrounding this school year could provide an opportunity to instill the love of learning in your children?
At Ignite, we believe that all children learn and grow when they are immersed in an educational community that fosters joy and wonder in learning. We know that when children are free to be themselves and learn at their own pace through individualized instruction, experiential learning, and passion projects, they thrive. They discover their gifting and are empowered to own their learning and take risks without fear of failure. Doors are opened and they step into their future with confidence to face challenges and the ingenuity to lead their communities with wisdom and creativity.
This vision drives our programming, from after school STEAM classes and summer camps to our future goals of educational STEAM outreach to undeserved communities and the neurodivergent and disabled communities of Greenville.
With the current educational crisis parents are facing, we have decided now is the time to expand our programming to include a unique educational option for parents who want to their children to thrive through face-to-face instruction in a safe environment. This fall we are launching a microschool, a small tribe of multi-age children who learn, explore, and grow together. Microschools have grown in popularity across America in the last decade. Most microschools are founded by parents and educators who have identified an educational gap for their own children and other children in their community and decide to form a school that fills that need. Microschools typically serve 8-20 multi-age kids but some larger established schools educate up to 150 children.
The 2020-2021 founding community will be comprised of 6 elementary aged children, and will require a year-long commitment. We will utilize a variety of educational curriculum and authentic inquiry-based learning to foster academic growth, creative problem solving, and a love of learning. In coming years, we want to grow the program so we can impact more families and children with authentic learning.
