Our Story

HCA Hallway

Welcome to the Howard Connect Academy, where the future is a place that we create.  Made up of a diverse community of learners, students are the center of the learning paradigm.  Empowering empathetic leaders who are well balanced in all that they do, we guide students to be both mentally and emotionally intelligent.

AUTHENTIC

Authentic learning experience anchored in relevance and purpose is the mainstay for our students. Academic content, knowledge, and skills are approached in interdisciplinary ways, much like they are in the adulthood our students are growing into. Tapping into the curiosity of our students is commonplace, and we use that curiosity to explore interests and discover possibilities. Our students do not experience learning as a set of prescribed procedures locked into a given timetable. Rather, our students learn in flexible ways, having a negotiated say in the time, place,space, and the whom they learn.

INNOVATORS

Our teachers are innovators who use their own creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking to design learning opportunities that personalize the learning to match the needs of our individual learners. Our students are taught to think, question, learn and adapt, creating a future worth standing up for, a future that elevates humanity. Students leave the school life-ready with a confidence in what they could be because they know the possibilities of what they can be.

JOYFUL

Our school is a joyful place. This can only be achieved when learning is fun, learning is relevant, and where learners are challenged to learn new skills and push themselves to try and try again in ongoing cycles of inquiry. With anything worth understanding, there are often multiple ways of looking into it. Our students are encouraged to see things differently, to bring their strength, and to acquire new abilities and ways of seeing themselves and their potential.
