The Knowledge Academy | Building future together

School philosophy

VISION STATEMENT

 

We believe that education in our private school is the key to our students’ future. The Knowledge Academy enables students to acquire that key by providing the finest in various education programs. Using online (digital) and traditional (text-based) delivery systems, we seek to set students on a course of lifelong, self-motivated learning, preparing them for a life of fulfillment, purpose, and success in the global 21st century.

 

We are and will be a school where design and social research drive approaches to studying issues of our time, such as democracy, technological change, economic empowerment, and sustainability. We want to be an intellectual and creative center for effective engagement in a world that increasingly demands better-designed objects, communication, systems, and organizations to meet social needs.

 

Our vision aligns with shifts in the global economy, society, and environment, which animates our mission and our values:

 

  • Creativity, innovation, and a desire to challenge the status quo will affect what and how we teach and the intellectual ambitions of the school itself.

  • Social engagement should orient students' academic experiences to help them become critically engaged citizens, dedicated to solving problems and contributing to the public good.

  • The  Knowledge Academy embraces these principles and innovate to address shifts in the global economy, society, and environment that require individuals to grapple with complex problems, pursue more fluid and flexible career pathways, and collaboratively create change.

 

           Mission Statement

 

The heart and soul of the school is a combined partnership with families and community to provide positive, student-centered education that balances academic excellence with physical, social and emotional well-being using both a western-style curriculum and Uzbek cultural traditions.
