Ignite 2017 • Riverpoint Academy Gala and Auction
Sat, May 13, 2017, 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM PDT
Please join us for IGNITE 2017! This annual Gala and Auction, sponsored by the Riverpoint Academy PTSO, supports the innovative learning and advanced technology offered to students at Riverpoint Academy. This award-winning school could not exist without the generous support of the Mead School District, community sponsors, private donations, and grants. This event consists of a plated dinner coupled with a live and silent auction. To support this amazing school, reserve your tickets today!
Riverpoint Academy supports all students, in creative and personalized ways, as they prepare for college programs and the 21st century. This is accomplished by providing open, flexible learning spaces where students engage in rigorous and authentic product-based learning. In a unique learning community, students participate in radical collaboration, learn to fail fast, dive deeply into relevant content, connect with professional experts, and become innovative problem solvers.
The Academy has a STEM+Entrepreneurship focus (science, technology, engineering, and math), and compliments this focus with the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Learning occurs as it does in “real life” -- in an interdisciplinary way, grounded in real and challenging problems, assisted by cutting edge technology and connectivity.
Riverpoint Academy is a high school in the Mead School District that offers college readiness coursework and professional partnerships in the community -- engineers, biomedical scientists, and entrepreneurs, internships, and individualized college planning guidance.
The students become confident learners because they are required to be makers, innovators, risk-takers and communicators. The smaller, personalized school allows students to follow their passions while being challenged to grow, to stretch in their individual skill set. Students will happily share they’ve never worked so hard in school and have never loved school so much.
In a recent survey, parents of Riverpoint Academy students shared that they’ve seen substantial growth in their daughter or son in the areas of leadership, collaboration, innovation and analytical thinking. University faculty, who serve on Riverpoint Academy’s Advisory Council, confirm that the depth of learning taking place is equal to that of the first two years at most colleges.
IGNITE 2017 Gala and Auction will consist of presentations, introductions and raising funds that will go directly towards purchasing industry-grade equipment and innovative programs at the school.
