Telesis Preparatory Academy is a kindergarten through twelfth grade school committed to offering curriculum individually designed and delivered to meet the needs of each student in real preparation for lifelong learning.
The word “Telesis” (derived from Greek) means “to bring each child to completion through intelligent and planned direction.” We define this as “planned progress” which is exactly what we do for each of our students, we plan their educational progress.
Telesis Preparatory Academy believes the key to students’ success is to have the student work at the level where he or she can be successfully challenged and actively engaged. We want each child to reach and recognize his or her own unique potential and we will accomplish this by developing an individualized curriculum for each student while placing them in a rigorous and engaging learning environment.
THE TELESIS TRIANGLE
The Telesis Preparatory Academy staff, administration, instructional, and support strongly believe in the Telesis Triangle, which represents the partnership we have with the teacher, the student, and the parents. Together, we are a three-member team that works collaboratively to ensure their individual student is receiving a high quality education.
Telesis Preparatory is organized by the delivery of our curriculum, so that as students are learning content, they are also learning the following:
How to function independently and in groups.
How to socialize with other children and adults
How to develop good work habits and attitudes.
How all disciplines (science, history, humanities, and the arts, for example) are related.
As experienced teachers we also understand the importance of a child’s self-concept, and we know that positive self-esteem will follow when an empathetic teacher or parent helps a child to develop competency and works collaboratively to support the whole child's intellect and social-emotional needs.
