A Day in the Life of a Compass Academy Student

“When I started in sixth grade, I would sometimes stop trying because it was too hard, but teachers would tell me not to give up,” says Emelia, a member of the founding class at Compass Academy, thinking back to how she felt three years ago.

Today, just a few months away from starting high school, she’s looking forward to the next step in her educational journey. “Now that I am in the eighth grade, Compass has given me the confidence to take on challenging classes … even in high school.”

Compass Academy hosts events where families and students use data to become life-long learners.

At Compass Academy, recent Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Growth reports show our students are making exciting gains. When our first class of students started Compass Academy in the sixth grade, their reading averaged around the third-grade level while math averaged at the fourth-grade level. However, by the eighth grade, our students improved by nearly four grade levels in both reading and math. In other words, in just three academic years, Compass Academy students gained the equivalent of four years of learning.
