Ideate High Academy’s mission is to provide a rich,
Design Thinking – based curriculum for creative high school pupils incorporating student-centered learning, interdisciplinary challenges, college preparation, internships, empathic social responsibility and innovative thinking for the 21st Century.
Design thinking is an empathy-based process and strategy for cultivating innovative solutions to complex challenges, as well as supporting the development of creative thinking skills. The design thinking process involves five modes: empathize, define, ideate, prototype, and test. At IDEATE High Academy, design thinking is intentionally integrated into the project-based curriculum to foster student innovation, collaboration, and creativity in solving complex challenges. These are essential skills for high school graduates in the 21st Century.
