On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to Venture Academy. We believe deeply in the extraordinary potential of our students and the power of education to equip them with the skills to lead meaningful lives. Venture Academy is a fully accredited public school serving students in grades 6-8 online and students in grades 9-12 online or in person. Classes, both in person and virtual, are designed to help students attain the knowledge and skills for lifelong success. Our staff is committed to providing quality instruction and varied learning opportunities for all of our students. Our competency-based approach to instruction and assessment ensures that students have the time and instructional support they need to master academic concepts. 

    At Venture Academy, academic competency and career readiness are top priorities. Our teachers are dedicated professionals second to none. All are highly qualified and have received advanced training both in their subject areas and in working with young people facing challenging circumstances. Our smaller class sizes and virtual learning options allow for innovative, flexible, and supportive instruction and learning opportunities. Students at Venture Academy learn valuable life skills, including resiliency, responsibility, and accountability. We educate the whole person to promote independent, healthy choices for a lifetime of personal and academic success. 

    Parent and community participation are essential components of a quality school. We encourage parents to be involved in their students’ education and we seek out community resources and input. 

    I speak for all of us when I say we are excited to be working with your student this school year. Please feel free to phone or email with any questions you may have. My door is always open to you and your student. 

    Motto:  Engage, Encourage, Excel
