Imagineer Academies is preparing to create magic every day by giving each child a choice in how they learn the content. Each child is given three missions to choose from (think G-rated Mission Impossible). Upon choosing their mission their learning in science, math, reading, and all core curriculum are discovered through the lens of that mission.

Consider how you learn, does interest level, choice, and context play a role in motivating you to dive into learning and how much you remember?

Missions create just one of the elements of magic we are bringing back to learning at Imagineer Academies.
