We believe each child who enters Triumph Academy will find a calling that changes the world. Our heroes are independent learners who find great joy in learning in a tight knit community that upholds the highest standards of excellence. The goals of our elementary studio include fostering a love of learning, enjoyment in reading, a desire to communicate clearly, and the joy of solving puzzles in real life - plus the ability to get along with others and move from daily to weekly and session-long goals.
The goal of an Acton Elementary studio is to equip each learner with the work ethic and relationship skills to be an independent learner - a hero who has learned how to learn, and how to think.
At Triumph Academy in Cleveland, TN, our learners are guided through their education in a one-room schoolhouse (the studio) with ages ranging from 5-12 years old (approximately K-6). Session curriculum is designed to provide students with the tools, knowledge, and character to be effective communicators and problem solvers and to build entrepreneurial spirits. The studio caters towards the ages and developmental needs of its learners and incorporates core components of the Acton educational model:
Socratic Guiding - asking the right questions gives our learners ownership of and autonomy over their education.
Hands-on Learning - implemented through project-based Quests, experiential learning, Montessori activities, and apprenticeships (for older, prepared students).
An Entrepreneurial Focus - which culminates in an annual Entrepreneurship Quest and optional Children’s Business Fair.
Learner-Driven Education - made possible through uninterrupted core learning time where heroes engage with materials of their own choosing.
Character Development - incorporated with intention into the school day. Designed to equip our learners to approach life with integrity, intentionality, and purpose.
A Hero’s Journey Framework - encourages our learners to find their calling and change the world by harnessing their own unique gifts and passions.
Every Child is a Genius - who will learn at their own pace and embodies unique gifts. We provide the time and space to discover and dig into those gifts. Every child is a genius at something. Whether it be building models or creating science experiments, singing and acting, or simply being the first to praise their classmates and uplift others. These are exceptional gifts that will be nurtured at Triumph Academy!
At Triumph Academy your child will learn to be, learn to know, and learn to do. They will launch into their own Hero's Journey...to find their calling, to change the world.
