IMAG Academy - a proposed public charter school
To uncover a student’s strengths and potential through engaging in community-centered concerns and projects in a safe, family-like environment that is accepting, supportive, and nurturing.
To become a community resource raising generations of innovative, mindful, accepting, and giving (IMAG) citizens grounded in their knowledge and capabilities to create and sustain ethnically diverse, successful, and peace-filled communities.
Innovation and Mindfulness are pillars to sustainable communities
IMAG Academy strives to create a continuum of experiences, in and outside of school, where the strengths and potential of the individual, family and community can flourish.
Our focus is our students.
As we focus on our students, we also understand their choices are influenced by their family and community. We are a family driven, student focused, and community centered school. At IMAG Academy, we surround our student with a supportive learning environment, teaching community and school organization.
Unique Educational Opportunities
Key Components of Our Educational Model
We're excited about the possibilities.
At capacity, IMAG Academy will be an engaging, place and project based learning environment for 750 students in grades K-12.
If we receive our charter approval in July 2017, we will open our doors in school year 2018-19 to 225 students in grades K, 1 and 6-9.
A Point of Concern
It is our last year to receive $750,000 of US DOE Charter School Funding
In 2016, IMAG Academy was 1 of 9 in the country to receive $750K to open a public charter school in Waipahu from the US Department of Education. If we don't receive an approval from the state commission this year, we will lose this earned award. More disheartening, if not approved, is the lost opportunity for the Waipahu and surrounding communities to have a tuition-free K-12 project-based learning environment for all students.
