Journeys Academy

Welcome to Journeys Academy!

Our faculty and staff are here to find creative and individualized approaches that lead to student success. Our unique setting allows for students to build relationships that lead to academic and social progress. We are proud to offer customized opportunities that allow for a focus on decisions and habits just as much as a focus on academic achievement. At Journeys Academy, you will find a lot of heart, experience, knowledge, coaching, connections, and careful guidance. Our team of professionals are here to motivate and find intrinsic rewards when students show progress.

Students are a part of a carefully operated behavior management system, focused on leveled incentives and interventions. We believe a positive approach encourages the core of desired behaviors and academic growth. Our Professional Learning Community stands on a foundation of faculty, staff, and students working together with a collaborative spirit of engagement.

Our mascot is an eagle. This is because when the eagle feels a storm coming, he/she uses the winds of the storm under the wings to rise above the clouds. While all other animals seek shelter or get pummeled, the eagle rises. During a storm the eagle soars above the clouds until the storm passes. This is what we ask of our students:  to use adversity and challenges as a resource to rise. As an alternative school with customized opportunities, we show students how to... 

Soar Above the Storm.

We recognize and appreciate the opportunity to serve our students well. It is my pleasure and honor to welcome you to Journeys Academy.  I encourage parents to stay in touch with teachers by phone, email, or conferences. Please also contact me if I can help in any way. 

GO EAGLES!!!
