Welcome to Quincy Innovation Academy! 

We will be opening our doors for the first time this year as a Big Picture School. Quincy Innovation Academy exists to share with students how academics and the real world come together to impact learning experiences. The Big Picture model emphasizes students at the center of learning which engages and challenges the student including making learning authentic. Students experience learning through varied methods including workshops, projects, real world internships, field trips and community service. Another program at Quincy Innovation Academy is our on-line learning program for 7-12th graders. This program offers students a pathway to their diploma though an on-line learning option. All Quincy Innovation Academy are eligible for a Washington State diploma, and meet state graduation requirements.

I have been with the Quincy School District for over 30 years and have been committed to ensuring that Quincy's families have access to high -Quality educational options where students thrive and are prepared to compete in the global market. We will build a program where the educators will go above and beyond to help students soar, and a commitment that students graduate and pursue post-secondary careers.

Quincy Innovation Academy will rigorously challenge our students, one at a time, as they forge relationships with the Quincy community and pursue their interests in the real world through internships. This starts by giving students the opportunity to learn in a place where they are known and know each other well and people treat each other with respect. It continues by designing a personalized learning plan for each student, providing real-world opportunities to connect their interest to their learning, and expecting them to find authentic, meaningful ways to show what they have learned. It culminates in graduation self-directed thinkers and learners with the skills necessary to success in college and beyond.

Please come and visit us anytime, to learn more about our programs.
