Von Adler Academy
Von Adler Academy
The Von Adler Academy lies in the center of the city of Tippler and is a highly regarded educational facility where some of the nation’s brightest and best are counted among the academy’s alumni.
The mission of Von Adler Academy is to provide a socio-economically, culturally and racially diverse community of students in the heart of Tippler with an intellectually challenging, experiential learning environment that develops each individual student’s confidence, potential, and individual responsibility as citizens of the world in which we live.
The four cornerstones of our operation work collaboratively to embody a true “community of learners” in which we all learn from and with one another:
Students: VA students engage in rigorous, active learning processes that develop conceptual understanding and self-knowledge. VA embraces the diversity of individual student’s skills, learning styles and array of multiple intelligences, ensuring that children have the opportunity to grow not just in core academic areas, but also in the arts, music, physical education and character development. Our standards-based curriculum is continuously tailored to individual needs. We utilize assessment data throughout the year to ensure that each student meets and exceeds state performance standards and the academic performance of neighboring schools, as we help each child develop a true lifelong passion for learning.
Teachers: Our collaborative professional community supports VA’s teachers with ample planning time, training, resources and autonomy. Teachers are able to continually develop their skills, collaborate with one another, and create, evaluate and refine curriculum that best fits their students utilizing a variety of ongoing assessments to track students’ progress.
Families: VA emphasizes the school/home partnership and free-flowing communication as integral to the success of the children. All VA families are urged to participate actively in the school community as volunteers, valued stakeholders and participants in regular family education workshops and school community activities.
Community: As ambassadors of knowleddge, we cultivate leadership, independence, self-knowledge, appreciation for different perspectives and respect, both within and beyond school walls. Just as we ask the community to support our school, so too will the school support the community. Student-designed service-learning projects, created during weekly classes devoted to this endeavor, enable each member of our community of learners to make a real and lasting contribution to the world around us.
