Upper School Director Welcome

Welcome to the Making Waves Academy Upper School!

We are a strong and vigilant community of students, parents, teachers, and administrators that encourage our students to dream BIG! Our students are inspired and prepared to be ambitious when exploring their post-secondary opportunities. Our vision in the Upper School embraces a philosophy that we are all life-long learners. This philosophy empowers our teachers to be excellent in their craft of supporting, encouraging, and partnering with our students in their own learning.

Our campus is deeply invested and rooted in the belief that cultivating a strong community means wrapping your arms around each individual student to make sure they are supported academically, socially, and emotionally. We want our students constantly thinking about their thinking and reflecting on where they stand academically in order to be top competitors in today’s highly competitive post-secondary admissions process and career exploration ventures.

Making Waves Academy supports the growth of our students as responsible citizens by creating a mindset that embraces a daily practice of our core values: Respect, Responsibility, Scholarship, Resilience, and Community. Whether you are visiting one of our five Advanced Placement classes, joining an Associated Student Body conversation, or supporting an athletic event, you will experience the astounding strength of our students’ voices inside and outside the classroom. We invite you to visit our campus to see how we truly embrace what it takes to create a special community to foster student aspirations to dream BIG!
