    Evolve Academy Overview


    Program Description

    Evolve Academy is an Alternative School for students on an IEP who have not been able to effectively learn in a traditional school environment due to their psychological, behavioral and / or emotional stressors. Evolve focuses on educational and social / emotional growth that conventional schools are unable to address, with a lower staff to student ratio.  Students participate in groups and individual sessions to build coping skills and self-esteem with the end goal being able return to school in the community.


    Evolve Academy Mission Statement

    Evolve Academy uses Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) as a proactive approach to establish the behavioral supports and a social culture needed for our students to achieve social, emotional and academic success.  Through social and emotional learning (SEL) students will learn and practice the skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. These social and emotional skills are critical to being a good student, citizen, and worker.


    Evolve Academy’s Vision Statement

    Students will be empowered to make effectives choices so as to become responsible individuals within their families, community and world.

    Level System Overview:

    The level system provides structure and routine for you, to help provide consistency in each day.  You will learn that the choices you make give you positive or negative outcomes and help you accept responsibility for those choices.


    The level system consists of five levels.  Each level has criteria that must be met to move to the next level.  As  you develop self-control and motivation you will move through the level system, with the goal of transition to your home school.  Your progress is measured on a daily basis through a Passbook, which is individualized to your needs. Teachers, mental health staff and you evaluate behaviors on a daily basis.  Parents are informed of your progress on a daily basis through the Passbook, which you will take home each day for parent review and signature.
