At Catalyst Academy, we prepare our scholars to define, reach for, and achieve their dreams. How do we do this? By closing the achievement and opportunity gap. Our educational philosophy is that a child’s education should seek mastery along three dimensions:

College Readiness

All scholars will be prepared to attend and graduate from a four-year college or university.  Catalyst scholars will be prepared by achieving mastery of a broad, rigorous college-preparatory curriculum that both prepares and inspires.

Career Readiness

All scholars need to be equipped with the skills to thrive in the 21st century economy, including communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity.

Life Readiness

A great education cultivates confident, compassionate scholars ready to achieve their dreams.

Catalyst Academy Philosophy

This is how we do it — at Catalyst:

  • We have science and engineering, including computer science, 5 days a week.
  • We have arts instruction (music, theater, visual art) 4 days per week.
