Emerald Academy has adopted the Breakthrough – Prep Schools’ four guiding principles as the foundation for our school’s educational program and school culture:


1. We put children’s needs first, in every single decision we make;

2. We hold everyone to the highest expectations, from our kindergartners to our board members;

3. We share a never give up attitude, no matter what it takes; and

4. We believe in our scholars, and know that every child can learn and excel.


Using these principles and the Breakthrough model, we will create a school that focuses on the following four pillars: Academic Excellence, Effective Teaching, A Highly Relational Culture Grounded in High Expectations, and Robust Parent and Community Engagement.
