About Our School

SCOPE Academy (a.k.a. the Greater Summit County Early Learning Center) is a stand-alone, public conversion/charter public school, independent and tuition-free. Our team of instructional leaders expect to be held accountable for advancing student achievement, building an environment that embraces the ideas of children, and cultivates thinkers who will find solutions and change the world.

We are bound by the same legal requirements of any traditional public schools in Ohio; including the New Learning Standards, State Testing, Governing Board Regulations, and Code of Regulations. What makes us different is the way that we deliver educational learning formats and opportunities to our students.

Our environment is set up for children to wonder, to promote developing research questions that they can pursue, and to be very hands on in their learning. Our project based approach is where learners work over an extended time period for a purpose beyond satisfying a school requirement. Our purpose is to encourage learners, to build something, to create something, to respond to a question they have, to solve a real problem, or to address a real need. Giving students a voice and a choice is always at the forefront of learning.
