Life-Coaching is an amazing part of our school and our kids’ school day!

We are very deliberate in creating a school enviroment where students feel socially, emotionally, and physically safe every day. We are so focused on this, that we begin every single morning with an environment we call Life-Coaching. This dedicated time occurs first thing in the morning for our entire student body. It lasts for 20-30 minutes depending on the age and grade-level of our students, and topics discussed. During this time, we divide our entire student body into groups to talk about LIFE, and nothing interrupts Life-Coaching. That’s how significant we deem this time for the health and well-being of our school and children. And this is why Path 5 of The Academy Way is Life-Coaching

During Life-Coaching, we focus on the following 5 areas (age and grade-level dependent):

  1. 1. Current Events
  2. 2. Self-Awareness and Self-Improvement
  3. 3. Serving Others
  4. 4. Manners
  5. 5. Relationships


It is our goal for each student to build a lasting and meaningful relationship with an adult in the school, so in a time of need or crisis they have someone they can turn to.  Special bonds created between students is another awesome outcome of our Life-Coaching environment. Relationships are strengthed during this dedicated time together and through discussion around these topics.  

As students get older, gender specific and smaller-sized groups are created. When possible, an adult of the same gender as the students, is assigned to each Life-Coaching group. Also, information a student shares during this dedicated time which may jeopardize their emotional or physical safety is immediately shared with parents.

Progress Not Perfection

Every child enters their school journey at different points. So, they each have different experiences, resources and teachings that they bring with them. Our school recognizes and embraces this.

Year-Round Calendar

We believe keeping kids engaged in learning every month throughout a calendar year is necessary for their long-term success.


The skills entrepreneurs acquire and use on a daily basis are invaluable life skills that benefit all successful adults, so we involve our students in various activities througout the year that incorporate, events, and projects that incorporate these life skills.
