"Fiercely Protecting the Spark of Curiosity"
what we do
ALL YOU NEED
Above all else, we love kids. Their individuality, their abilities, their passions. Children are amazing people and we consider ourselves lucky to work with them everyday.
At the core of everything we do is the belief that all kids have an inherent, natural desire to learn. It may be on their own terms and motivated by their own interests, but the spark of curiosity should ignite into a burning, lifelong passion for learning.
LEARNING WITHOUT LIMITS
School should be a learning environment, not a testing environment. Because students are critical decision makers in their education, our innovative teaching methods foster personalized experience and discovery. Our student-led approach to education enables kids to pursue interests at their own pace.
SAFE IN EVERY WAY
An accepting, safe learning environment-one without the labels and restrictions of traditional educational settings-enables students to face challenges head-on and embrace failure. Our students and teachers feel safe and empowered to take risks, no matter the result.
Our story is one that focuses on the whole child and facilitating the development of the child’s independence and sense of personal empowerment. Ignite Entrepreneurship Academy (IEA) is an innovative, K-7th grade public charter school located in Traverse Mountain, Lehi, UT. IEA is launching a program that combines the best in Montessori learning with blended and project-based learning to provide students with an accelerated learning environment in the context of real-life experiences. Our competency-based, personalized learning model is designed to empower students to become self-directed learners, develop a sense of character and purpose, and work collaboratively with peers to execute real life projects.
IEA has assembled an influential team of industry experts from across the nation to implement a dynamic school model that has dramatically proven to accelerate learning. We have worked hard to build a team of innovative, upwardly-mobile administrators and teachers to help create and implement a dynamic program.
Central to the learning environment at Ignite Entrepreneurship Academy is a strong culture of community. We welcome parents and community members to be active members of our school's development and identity. Our students' success will be ensured even further with support and active involvement by our stakeholders. We recognize and believe that education exists outside the walls of classrooms, and look forward to building productive and engaging relationships with community and business partners who will aid us in taking learning out of the classroom and into the real world.
The doors of our beautiful, new building will open to a diverse range of learners in Fall 2018. The school facility makes use of open spaces, such as a cafeteria/multi-purpose space, flex rooms for student collaboration, break-out rooms for group work, Montessori-themed classrooms conducive to both group and independent learning, a large and welcoming innovation room that will encourage critical thinking and project-based rigorous learning, and a full-sized commercial kitchen.
