General School Mission

"Highpoint Academy is dedicated to providing excellence in education for each student. Our teachers are committed to achieving this excellence by enhancing our children's natural interest in learning through exploration, motivation, manipulation and application.
At Highpoint, we also provide a challenging curriculum with flexibility to meet the needs of each student and an enriching program that encourages critical thinking, scientific exploration, physical fitness, hands-on learning and good citizenship.
Since we believe that a person's "character" is essential for success,
we have designed a "Character Education" program which is integrated with our Social Studies Curriculum. Here, teachers and students thoroughly cover two different "core values" each month. These include: trustworthiness & responsibility; citizenship & democracy; caring & kindness, courage & pursuit of excellence; respect & self-control; honesty & integrity; courtesy & manners;and fairness & cooperation. In addition, teachers continuously stress the importance of ethics, proper etiquette and morals.
Highpoint provides a safe family environment in which all our students can explore ideas and feelings. We offer the guidance that ensures our children will not get lost in the process of this exploration.
