Ivywood Classical Academy - Choice Schools Associates
Position Details: 


Ivywood Classical Academy teaches and equips scholars to become moral and intellectual leaders in a self-governing society. We inspire wonder.



Ivywood Classical Academy is a tuition-free public school academy that will educate students using the virtues-based, rigorous, classical education tradition. The classical curriculum is time-tested, research-based and is proven to develop children into thoughtful, caring, educated, freethinking young adults. The curriculum emphasizes an education in the humanities, sciences, and arts and integrates Spanish and Latin language to promote depth in learning. The anticipated opening will be for the 2019/2020 school year starting with grades K-5, with the plan to add a middle school and high school in the future.

Ivywood Classical Academy is in the final stages of its charter application with a charter authorizing university, which includes identifying a location. Our next step, after charter approval in the fall, will be to secure the location for the school, in the Plymouth and Northville areas, site preparation, and staff recruitment.
