Our Educational Program
At Invictus Academy, Student achievement is our top priority.
We align our instruction to the Common Core State Standards, which are designed to ensure students are on track to be successful in college. We support our students to tackle increasingly challenging work, such that when they graduate, they are equipped with the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and beyond.
Rigorous, college preparatory instruction
daily tutoring and advising
We believe our students will thrive with individual attention and support. As a result, we have one period each day designated for tutoring support. In addition, students have an Advisory period in which they set academic and personal goals, meet with their Advisor, and gain college knowledge.
Double periods of math and english
We believe that math and English are foundational subjects, and so we provide students extra instruction in these areas. This is consistent with the model used by many of the strongest schools in the country.
a robust speech and debate program
Research has shown the positive effects of speech and debate programs, as well as the importance of communication skills in the workplace. At our school, every student takes speech and debate in 7th and 8th grade, and then has access to a speech and debate team in high school.
development of non-academic skills
We believe that students' development of non-academic skills builds the habits and mindsets needed to be successful in all settings. In middle school, we make time in our schedule each day for students to build skills in activities like basketball, chess, and coding. In high school, students will have access to elective courses, clubs, and sports that encourage them to build skills outside of their classes.
