Reston, VA (PRWEB) October 26, 2016
Beginning in Fall 2017, Ideaventions Academy for Mathematics and Science is launching an innovative high school, allowing students to experience a personalized education in an environment where they can grow and explore their interests as they prepare for college. The Ideaventions Academy Upper School is accepting freshman applicants for the 2017-2018 academic year. The first high school class will graduate in 2021.
The unique academic program will have a specialized focus on research and innovation, requiring students to pursue an individual research project over multiple years. Located in Reston, along the Dulles Technology corridor—a renowned research and development center—the Academy gives students a chance to explore topics at a depth usually seen only at the university level. The program fosters students developing research and time management skills that will support success in college and beyond.
On Saturday, November 12, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. there will be an open house to share with parents and interested students the unique offerings of the high school program. Ideaventions Academy opened in Fall 2015 as an independent school for gifted 4th-8th grade students, with a focus on math and science, an engaging, hands-on curriculum, lively student life, and diverse experiences outside the classroom.
“Too often, our schools are overly-standardized, uninspired, and test-driven; they are focused more on processes rather than people. Ideaventions Academy provides an extraordinary education that is engaging, rigorous and personalized. We are a vibrant community designed for the intellectually curious—those who seek to engage in significant endeavors that reach beyond the classroom,” said Ideaventions founder Ryan Heitz. “The introduction of our Ideaventions Academy Upper School provides gifted students a supportive, inspiring, and challenging learning environment that prepares them for top colleges and universities and life.”
