Vision & Mission

Vision

Aspire Scholar Academy is committed to partnering with families to create an inspiring and rigorous educational environment for 12 to 18-year-old students. We strive to build an uplifting learning community that fosters unity, while encouraging mentors and students to appreciate and embrace the unique contributions of each individual. In this environment, students gain leadership qualities such as confidence, compassion, and integrity. We believe parent involvement is integral to the success of ASA and our students, and we rely on the valuable contributions of all our parents for mentoring and administrative support. As students choose to engage in meaningful scholarly pursuits, we empower them to grow academically, socially, and emotionally as they strive to develop Christ-like character.
