Exciting News! We Have a Home!
Envision Science Academy, and our developers, are pleased to announce that we have secured a location for the permanent home of our school! The future site is nestled in the prestigious Traditions neighborhood off Traditions Grande Boulevard in Wake Forest, NC. The site features areas for the new building, visitor/staff parking, carpool queuing and open space, which will accommodate Envision's successfully growing enrollment. Our developers will continue to move forward with Town and State approvals over the next several months. The approval process is often an unpredictable part of the schedule, and more updates will provided as they become available. Until we are certain that the new building will be completed on time, we will play it safe and evaluate contingency space plans for the fall of 2016. We appreciate the support and patience of all staff, families and stakeholders while planning this momentous facility project.
The mission of Envision Science Academy is to provide innovative instruction through experiential learning with a focus on science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) in order to prepare elementary and middle school students to compete, lead, and excel in the global marketplace.

STEAM Implementation Rubric
Envision Science Academy completed its first year of operation in June 2015, which boasted a great start on the STEAM Rubric. This rubric also serves as a valuable planning tool for the 2015-2016 academic year. One of the foundational concepts to the growth of our STEAM academy is the achievement of at least the “Prepared” category in each of the elements in the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction’s (NCDPI) STEM Attribute Implementation Rubric. More information will be provided as we continue to develop and implement our STEAM instructional program.
