At Community Roots Academy, we believe in the power of project-based learning to inspire and engage students in their education. Our approach emphasizes hands-on, real-world problem-solving that helps students develop critical thinking, creativity, communication, and teamwork skills. Projects are often interdisciplinary and can cover subjects such as science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEM/STEAM). The ultimate goal of project-based learning is to prepare students for success in college, career, and life.
Our scholars are passionate, driven and enthusiastic about the learning process. Our staff is also passionate about project-based learning and are dedicated to supporting our families in every aspect of the learning process.
WHAT DOES THE ROOTS RUN SUPPORT?
This year, our annual jog-a-thon (now called ‘The Roots Run’) is supporting physical space improvements that enhance our scholars’ well being on campus: filtered water filling stations, outdoor play equipment for recess and PE, and unique and inclusive recess experiences.
The Roots Run is an on-campus event that every scholar participates in on 3/8/23. Parents and family are welcome to attend and cheer your scholar(s) on!
With your support, we can continue to provide our students with the engaging learning opportunities and experiences that are at the core of our project-based learning approach. Every contribution, no matter the size, makes a meaningful impact. *All donations are 100% voluntary and not required in any way.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and commitment to making CRA a thriving learning community!
