Welcome to Douglass Academy!!

We’d like to first welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year which will be full of new and innovative strategies to enhance learning for all students. At Douglass, we have a mission of helping our students learn, grow, create and innovate. We do not do this mission alone, we are fully invested in working with families as well as the community at large. We believe every student has the right to a high-quality education and it is our belief we are responsible for delivering innovative curriculum and instruction, to include technology-integrated lessons.

Douglass Academy offers a wide-array of innovative differentiated methods, strategies, and best practices for all students. We believe in providing not just strong academic curriculum, but also providing opportunities for students to visit colleges, engage in school gardening (to include a Farmer’s Market), as well as learn more about technological advances within their local and global community. We encourage students to engage in problem-solving, think critically, and above all understand that failure is a growth opportunity. We understand part of our mission as educators is to build grit and relentlessness within our students, so we engage students in multiple opportunities to practice higher-order thinking skills. We encourage students as well as teachers to try to expand their learning beyond the classroom walls through online collaborations.

Douglass Academy staff members work collaboratively to create flexible learning environments for all students allowing for full engagement in the learning process. We strive for all students to be college ready in not just academics but also in confidence, so our students believe and can confidently SOAR as leaders of the future!

We look forward to a successful year!

Sincerely Yours,
Dr. Stephanie Ratliff
