Our Mission
As an ISA (Institute for Student Achievement) school, we deeply believe in personalization and support of our students. L.I.F.E. (Learning and Integrating Film Education) Academy is a small, safe, college preparatory environment where students pursue their learning in an atmosphere supported by the entire school community. Through the integration of film and academics, L.I.F.E. Academy students develop creative and technical skills to prepare them for college and career endeavors. Teachers emphasize inquiry, project, and performance-based assessments to engage the whole child. Students are encouraged to think critically, develop their unique talents, and give back generously to the community.
