Exciting News! We Have a Home!
Envision Science Academy, and our developers, are pleased to announce that we have secured a location for the permanent home of our school! The future site is nestled in the prestigious Traditions neighborhood off Traditions Grande Boulevard in Wake Forest, NC. The site features areas for the new building, visitor/staff parking, carpool queuing and open space, which will accommodate Envision's successfully growing enrollment. Our developers will continue to move forward with Town and State approvals over the next several months. The approval process is often an unpredictable part of the schedule, and more updates will provided as they become available. Until we are certain that the new building will be completed on time, we will play it safe and evaluate contingency space plans for the fall of 2016. We appreciate the support and patience of all staff, families and stakeholders while planning this momentous facility project.
2014-2015 NC School Report Card
ESA recently received its first NC School Report Card issued by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI). We are tremendously excited and proud to share that we scored an A in school performance for the 2014-2015 academic year. We rank among the top 6.4% (158 out of 2446) of all public schools and public charters in North Carolina who scored an A+ or an A. By school performance grade, ESA ranks number 16 out of 146 charter schools in North Carolina. Click here for more detailed information and our official 2014-2015 EOG test results.
2015 Performance Framework
We are very excited and proud to share with you our first NC Charter School Performance Framework issued by the Department of Public Instruction. The purpose of the Framework is to establish expectations for performance and track a charter school's growth and improvement over time. This Framework has three distinct parts: (1) Academics, (2) Finances, and (3) Operations. Note that, as a new charter school, Envision Science Academy was not evaluated on the Academics part because we have no test scores from a previous academic year. The Framework guides (rubrics) for all three parts can be found on the Office of Charter Schools' Wiki page.
Highlights from 2014-2015

We could not have been successful without the tremendous support of our staff, young scholars, families, business partners, and community supporters. The ESA Board of Directors is taking this opportunity to share a few highlights from our inaugural year. More...

Envision Science Academy completed its first year of operation in June 2015, which boasted a great start on the STEAM Rubric. This rubric also serves as a valuable planning tool for the 2015-2016 academic year. One of the foundational concepts to the growth of our STEAM academy is the achievement of at least the “Prepared” category in each of the elements in the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s (NCDPI) STEM Attribute Implementation Rubric. More information will be provided as we continue to develop and implement our STEAM instructional program.
