Philosophy of Education



Firelight Academy is a university model secondary level school made up of educators who believe that there is another way to light the fire of learning in students. We do not teach to a test, we do not rely on rote memorization. We aim for connection and believe that our students have what it takes to change the world.

Because of this, students won't receive typical instruction. We don't just want them to understand we want them to see how the subject relates to them in their world. So instead of relying on lectures, we discuss. We move. We dissect. We write. 

We learn.

Firelight Academy admits students of any race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It doesn't discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
