Aloha and welcome to Equitas Academy #5!
We are the newest member of the Equitas family of schools, set to open Fall of 2019. As the fifth location, we hope to continue closing the achievement gap by upholding the same standard of excellence evident in our four existing school locations.
At Equitas Academy, we provide a structured, achievement-based community that prepares students to graduate from four-year colleges and universities. Equitas is a place that provides scholars an equitable learning experience that encourages their development into persons capable of and determined to make meaningful contributions to society, and thereby fulfilling the educational goals to become self-motivated, competent, and lifelong learners. We believe that by developing the whole child – both academic and social-emotional competencies, scholars will have the hard and soft skills necessary to get to and through college.
EQ5 is an ecosystem (EQ5ystem) in which scholars, families, and educators support, challenge and celebrate one another to produce college graduates and change agents. EQ5 will equip and empower all stakeholders through trusting relationships, rigorous and culturally relevant practices, radically candid feedback, and opportunities for service and advocacy. We believe in constant improvement by employing the cycle: praise, probe, problem-solve, practice, plan ahead, and follow-up.
We embrace who we are, advocate for what we need, and commit to excellence in order to become a model of excellent schools.
We are eager to embark upon the journey towards college graduation with you.
