The Mission of Explore Knowledge Academy (EKA) is Personalized Learning through Educational Discovery: Creating Leaders One Project at a Time. EKA's goal is to open the world of learning and leadership to young people. At EKA, advisors, students, parents, and community members work together to create life-long leaders through the use of Project Based Learning methods and the integration of modern technology. As Nevada's first iSchool Campus, integrating iPad technology with the Project Based Learning educational platform, EKA provides a focused learning, technology infused environment for students. iPads are available to each student while on campus, K -12 wide to increase project and research depth. Explore Knowledge Academy (EKA) expects all students to meet the requirements of the 21st Century Course of Study. Seniors are enrolled in a year-long 120 hour Senior Project class in which they create a capstone project that gives back to the school community, or the community at large. All direct instruction includes an integration of content knowledge and process skills through hands-on inquiry based instruction, research and experimentation. Students at all levels K -12 create and present projects in direct and non-direct instruction courses in order to meet standards, share their learned knowledge and embrace the feeling of community.
