Du Bois Integrity Academy's mission is to prepare college and career ready scholars who are confident and inquisitive lifelong learners.
Our academic program has two pillars that support substantial achievement improvement: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) combined with Blended Learning.
The charter school's academic commitment deeply embeds a nationally-renowned STEM curriculum and development model that is aligned with Common Core Georgia Performance Standards. We propose to use research-based instructional models that have been implemented in other Georgia charter schools with success.
We will use theme-based, interdisciplinary, integrated curricula to facilitate instruction and learning. A combination of tightly-controlled behavioral studies and groundbreaking neurological research supports theme-based education as a means to improve the opportunities for success for all learners. A review of research reveals that the principles of self-determination, self-reliance, self-respect, and individual initiative inherent in theme-based education strengthen connections to academic competencies. It makes strong contributions to students' language abilities and reasoning skills through developing decoding and interpreting skills in symbol systems other than conventional linguistic ones. Pedagogy draws clear connections that students' prior knowledge, with contexts outside of the classroom, and cultural perspective make learning more significant.
