The term “at-risk” is often used to describe students who are considered to have a higher probability of failing academically or dropping out of school. Although, John Lewis Invictus Academy is located in an area that is considered impoverished and broken, we are determined that those present circumstances will NOT be the ending results for our students. 

John Lewis Invictus Academy opened it’s doors last school year, August 4, 2017, and welcomed 6th graders from across the district. Although our academy is located in a low income district, our hope is to provide students with opportunities that are in line with their dreams.  We plan to give them the best academic and social environment that will facilitate the nurturing and training of our students’ abilities. 

Not only do we plan to educate our students, we plan to fulfill their desire to participate in extracurricular school activities. This academic year we have expanded to provide curriculum to 6th and 7th graders, however, our yearly budget did not expand to accommodate school activities, cross country trips, sports uniforms, and the basic necessities for an expanding educational program.  Help is needed for our students to participate and represent our school in sports and academic competitions across the district. John Lewis Invictus Academy is committed to giving our students the absolute best; unfortunately, we lack the funds to achieve our goals. We need your help. Becoming a school sponsor will help to provide students with the chance to achieve their dreams.

Here at John Lewis Invictus Academy, we are committed to reshaping the mindset of our scholars.   By training and nurturing them academically we will demonstrate that all things are possible. We are helping to change the lives of those who have need community support in order to realize there dream of a positive future. 

For decades children in the surrounding community suffered because of the lack of support, guidance, and funding for their academic and extracurricular endeavors. However, with the help of our excellent teachers, staff members, and community leaders, John Lewis Invictus Academy is determined to make a difference in the lives of our students. 

Living in an impoverished neighborhood should by no means dictate the type of academic opportunities that our students receive.  No student should be denied the chance to become successful and productive citizens.  We believe that ALL students deserve to be treated equitably despite their economic background.  

“Choose Greatness” is a phrase that the John Lewis Invictus team embraced for this reason; it’s speaks life into our children. We are dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of our students.  We will ensure that all students understand that they have power within themselves and we will equip them with the knowledge to succeed. Our academy has adopted the Summit Learning Program to ensure that our scholars receive a quality educational program geared towards helping children master skills that are vital to them reaching success in the future.
