Our Mission Statement :
We strongly believe that each student can be a successful learner! Our small setting, intensive communication outreach, and personalized attention make for a caring and individualized environment that centers on strength-based learning for each student. Both middle school and high school students with academic, social, and emotional needs gain the necessary life skills needed to succeed beyond our Academy.
Our Philosophy :
Our staff provides a support system where the students can gain pertinent skills and prepared for life after middle school or high school. Our curriculum is designed to meet students’ specific academic needs as well as takes into account students’ personal strengths and limitations that best fit them within the structure and community of Humanex Academy. We do this by providing individualized instruction and extensive counseling support with the intention of helping students graduate, go to college or a trade school, begin employment, or pursue other endeavors. We utilize this individualized, solution-focused, multi-modality approach because of our proven success in developing responsible young people.
We envision a supportive and structured learning community where teachers help students expand their academic and social skills so they are able complete middle school and be ready for the challenges of high school, able to graduate from high school, become job-ready, and/or go on to further educational opportunities. Our focus on academic preparation and emotional maturation develops each student’s love of life-long learning, knowledge of his or her own academic gifts, good decision-making skills, and healthy self-advocacy.
Our Signature Program: PACER
Preparation * Accountability * Communication * Effort * Resilience
The program has been designed by Humanex Academy to serve its students,
parents, faculty and staff in their own personal growth. These growth areas are academic, social, emotional, and behavioral and are approached with a holistic perspective, intending to encourage, guide, and care for all participants. At Humanex Academy, we believe that focus on and improvement in the areas of PACER can and will lend to happier, healthier, and more confident individuals, whether you are a student, a parent, or an educator.
The points of focus in PACER are meant to be understood as areas to be actively worked on, but not necessarily in a linear fashion, as we all learn and grown differently, and we all have different strengths and challenges. Some things may come easily to us, and others will always be obstacles. Our goal with the PACER program is to help each individual identify and celebrate strengths, accept and adapt to obstacles, speak honestly and well about gifts and needs, and learn to find a goals setting system that works best for them.
Our acronym, PACER, stands for Preparation, Accountability, Communication,
Effort and Resilience. We feel that “keeping up with the PACER” can become a lifelong approach to actively working to better oneself, being conscious of self and others, and working to share what works and what does not work in each endeavor whether it is academic, social, emotional, or behavioral in nature.
