Facts about TriPoint Academy
TriPoint Academy is a place where students can embrace their academic talents and areas for improvement. TriPoint is a microschool, which means students work collaboratively in clusters throughout the day to engage in learning. Students are not bound by traditional grade levels, developing a more family-oriented school culture.
What sets TriPoint apart from public schools is our Innovations, CEEDS, and WINGS programs. Our Innovations Art block uses the arts and creative processes as a medium for students to work across multiple disciplines. It begins with the foundations of creative processes and slowly overlaps material from the students’ different content areas into it. CEEDS time pushes students further academically while engaging in authentic learning experiences to develop expert connections, skills, and language in a particular field. The WINGS program, Weaving Interests of Next Gen Scholars, is the after-school program which is broken up into three blocks: small group academic support, student-interest driven projects, and PE or sports. The student-interest projects take a student’s interest and connect it with academics into a more casual PBL activity; projects vary per student and may range from building models of working engines to learning an instrument.
Partnerships with Bamberger Ranch, EcoRise, and Picture Your World support the unique programming of TriPoint. Students travel to Bamberger Ranch in Johnson City four times throughout the school year, including two day trips, a three day/two night trip, and summer camp. EcoRise provides activities and grant opportunities to support students’ service projects.
TriPoint also provides breakfast, lunch, and the WINGS after school program at no cost.
