Get Involved

Making Waves Academy (MWA) is a unique community comprised of a variety of stakeholders. One of the signature aspects of this community is the pride that Wave-Makers and their families take in being part of MWA. This is evident in our high levels of parent engagement, student achievement and attendance, the breadth and frequency of school-wide events and activities, and the sportsmanship we display in interscholastic athletics.

As a public charter school, we seek different ways to address being able to offer our holistic approach. Our core program consists of several key features that include:

    • Psychological services by trained clinical psychologists and a site-based social worker
    • Transportation services to help families get to and from school
    • An investment in technology hardware and software for faculty, staff, and students that is accessible throughout the day in every classroom
    • Tiered intervention strategies that consists of the use of technology tools and intervention programming and support for our students, and training for our faculty and staff
    • An investment in professional development for our faculty and staff in the areas of instruction, supervision, and cultural competency

Your support through direct financial donations and/or volunteering at the school will help us continue to provide a comprehensive program that puts our Wave-Makers on a successful road to colleges, careers, and opportunities that will allow them to fulfill their hopes and dreams.

Thank you in advance for your support.
