Peer interaction is alive and well at Provost Academy, and in fact, many students report getting to know peers in their online community whom they would have never met otherwise because of social or geographic barriers. Students interact regularly in their live classes and tutoring sessions, and have opportunities to work on group projects and discussions. Contributing to class blogs and forums is another great way for students to interact, express their opinions, and learn from others in a less formal environment than a classroom.
School Clubs and Organizations
Students at Provost Academy have the opportunity to be involved in extracurricular clubs and organizations through Provost. These clubs plan events, activities, field trips and projects that foster interest and exploration. Provost Academy students create a yearbook each year, and we encourage students to pursue activities such as sports, dance, music, and volunteering. We also encourage students to participate in activities through local organizations outside of school. See the descriptions of our 2014-15 Clubs here!
Events and Field Trips
Throughout the year, Provost Academy will organize various events and field trips to extend student learning and give students a chance to interact with one another and with their community. Many of these activities (including dances, or social events) will be based on student and parent support and interest. Provost Academy also works to establish partnerships with local, statewide, and national organizations. By collaborating with organizations such as community colleges, libraries and museums, we can offer many activities and programs that enrich the lives of our students.
What We Believe
Provost Academy is a community of families and educators dedicated to student success. We believe that in the 21st century, a sound background in science and mathematics is key to student success, and that well-rounded, inspired students are the best prepared for life after high school. We strive to develop a unique and supportive community that encourages academic excellence, as well as civic and social involvement.
Eight Core Values
Character development is an important part of the high school experience. Provost Academy emphasizes the Eight Core Values program of our partner EdisonLearning - wisdom, justice, courage, compassion, hope, respect, responsibility, and integrity -- as essential elements of our school culture. By actively promoting and embracing the core values throughout learning activities, we provide a clear reference point that encourages the formation of a positive learning culture and guides all that we do. This is true for all members of the Provost Academy community, including teachers, administrators, support staff, and students.
