|About||An academic powerhouse that will serve scholars in grades K-8 and train them to become innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders in their communities.|
|Mission||Genesis will challenge scholars to master the academic concepts necessary to become expert problem solvers, decision makers, communicators, and leaders who maximize their passions, gifts, and skills to serve, and add value to, their families and the world.|
Genesis Innovation Academy will prepare K-6 scholars from under-served communities to be more than expert test takers. Genesis will implement a project-based approach to learning that will push scholars to become innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders. Our scholars will not only learn, they will plan, design, create, build, market, and collaborate – in service to their school and community. Genesis will use technology to individualize instruction and allow students to access educational resources anytime, anywhere, and at their own pace. The Genesis culture will also implement programs that separately target the development of boys into responsible young men, and girls into strong and independent young women. In short, Genesis will build a community of scholars who are empowered with the knowledge and skills to create the better future that we all want them to have.

Character (Ethics, Religion, and Philosophy) – Lots of evidence suggests non-cognitive skills predict success better than test scores. Genesis will instruct scholars in ethics as a foundation for great decision-making. Scholars will not simply be told what to think, but will refine their own moral code (and question normative ones) by analyzing canonical literary and religious works. They will also have to consider ethics in their learning activities and daily interactions. This will be the primary focus of the English Literature and Composition sequence.
Business, Economics, and Finance – We will use Economics (including student-run, simulated classroom economies; stock market games; etc.) to instruct scholars on how to use cost-benefit analysis to make good stewardship decisions and allocate scarce resources (time, money) in every aspect of their lives (finance, rela
