Mission: Compass Rose Academy is a Christian residential treatment center that uses emotion-focused and experiential interventions to build in deeper and longer-lasting changes at the character level.
Vision: To offer hope and transformation through Christ to children and families.
Core Values: Connection. Individuation. Integration. Agency.
Compass Rose Academy offers innovative and rigorous academic opportunities for students. Our academic model provides integration of our clinical, residential, and academic services for students. All CRA academic staff are trained in our model of care and work closely with our program as a whole in order to provide the best environment for our students.
The Academy is a dual accredited, project-based learning, private Christian school for 7th-12th graders. We provide experiences for students in which their learning is tied to meaningful, real-world experiences and application. Our program emphasizes student voice and choice and teachers tailor their instruction to student interest. Positive relationships with staff members and social- emotional learning opportunities are a key differentiator to what makes our school successful.
Our programming also offers a variety of other components which include:
- Project-Based Learning
- Primarily in-person instruction
- Daily devotions
- Spiritual Life
- Social Emotional Learning including Mindfulness
- Off-Campus field trips
Each student has an individualized academic plan specifically designed to move that student toward meeting graduation requirements. The curriculum is supplemented with enrichment activities such as general classroom discussions and off-campus field trips that reiterate core themes of healing, development, teamwork, compassion, and respect. The school is able to provide many levels of support from Special Education Services to college dual enrollment courses through a partnership with Indiana Wesleyan University.
Each teacher stresses accountability for academic performance and personal behavior. With a low student-teacher ratio, strict behavior standards, a structured setting including a uniform policy, students have the opportunity to experience academic success, often for the first time. In the process, students learn important study skills that benefit them throughout their lives.
Students attend school Monday through Thursday with holiday breaks and an extended break in the summer. A year-round calendar provides a seamless curriculum for students who enroll or withdraw throughout the calendar year.
Expected Student Outcome Statements:
- Students are relational & respectful of others.
- Students experience personal growth and emotional health
- Students are academically prepared for the next stage.
- Students actively seek out spiritual growth.
Academic Philosophy: The Academy is a private, Christian school dedicated to providing a rigorous, relational, and student-centered academic experience for students.
Some of our Spiritual Life Activities include:
Bible Class – Each morning teachers walk students through different portions of the biblical story. Students engage in learning about the Word through skits, videos, reading and reflective writing.
Sunday Morning Church Service – Each Sunday morning, the homes attend a church service at a local contemporary church in town. To learn about the church and even watch archived services from home, contact us.
Chapel – Team members and students alike gather weekly to engage in worship with song and teachings. These are led by our chaplain and we also welcome various guest speakers from the community and within our own team.
Optional Bible Study – Weekly students are given the opportunity to gather as a campus and engage in a study of Scripture. This is a specific time to explore the deeper questions of faith.
Additionally, our chaplain is always available to meet individually with students.
