|Barack Obama Academy - General Information

The students and teaching staff will develop in collaboration:
Our school's curriculum is aligned to the new Common Core State Standards allowing teachers to integrate common instructional goals, which fosters a rigorous academic learning environment. The staff of BOAACD realizes that as positive role models their influence extends far beyond the classroom and is fundamental in the creation of a welcoming, respectful, and inclusive academic environment. Our students thrive because of our lower teacher/student ratios and the establishment of positive learning relationships among families, educators, faith groups, civic organizations, businesses and other members of the community.
BOAACD parents are welcome to visit the school building, talk with teachers and staff, voice concerns, share ideas, serve as volunteers, and suggest ways to improve our school. We are committed to developing meaningful relationships with our neighbors by attending community events and forming partnerships with local organizations to maintain the development of a positive learning community. The students will design a detailed plan for graduation in concert with their guidance counselor identifying the specific courses they must take, opportunities they should pursue, and extra help they need in order to succeed in school and beyond. Every student receives frequent and ongoing support from at least one academic advisor and our parents can access their children’s academic and social progress through the Genesis Parental Portal.
“Michelle and I are here only because we were given a chance at an education. I will not settle for an America where some kids don’t have that chance.” ~ President Barack Obama ~
