The educational philosophy of the Akili Academy of New Orleans is driven by our college preparatory mission.

Our philosophy is based on four core values:

  1. All students can learn and master grade level standards.
  2. Great teachers and great teaching are essential to student academic success.
  3. A structured, focused, and accountable school culture drives student achievement.
  4. Data analysis drives effective instruction.

The core values of Akili Academy incorporate the following elements to support the educational needs of our students and to reach our academic goals:

  • Use of high quality, tier 1 curriculum in all classes and grade levels.
  • An unrelenting focus on literacy acquisition in the early grades to ensure that all students are reading at or beyond grade level.
  • Intervention or extension time embedded in our daily schedule to meet the needs of all  students.
