Academics

School Design

Each Vertex Partnership Academies school is structured into a Lower School and Upper School.

In 2022, Vertex Partnership Academies plans to apply for candidacy for the Middle Years Program. Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its academic programs.
 
In the Vertex Partnership Academies Lower School, each student-scholar will complete a rigorous foundational program in the liberal arts and sciences that emphasizes knowledge and thinking through writing workshops, Socratic seminars, inquiry-based learning, and character education designed to focus on character, virtues and values in the interest of human flourishing.

 

In 2023, Vertex Partnership Academies plans to apply for candidacy for the IB Diploma and IB Career Programs. Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its academic programs.

In the Vertex Partnership Academies Upper School, our plan is that student-scholars will choose a final two-year pathway that empowers them to be a graduate of either the Diploma Program, that has prepared them to enter and compete in the finest colleges and universities in the country or abroad; or the Career Program, that has prepared them to more immediately enter the labor market with professional skills and knowledge in a particular industry sector. 

Curriculum 

Each year, students at Vertex Partnership Academies will engage in at least one collaboratively planned interdisciplinary unit that involves at least two subject groups.

Students will also complete a long-term project where they decide what they want to learn about, identify what they already know, discover what they will need to know to complete the project, and create a proposal or criteria for completing it.
