Students who thrive in a small environment that develops character, integrity, compassion for others, and academic skills will find success at Bowers Academy.
Founded to address the needs of non-traditional learners, Bowers Academy balances academic challenge with self-reflection, exceptionally small class sizes, and the unique learning environment of the Bowers Farm.
Our ultimate goal at Bowers Academy is to graduate competent, empathetic, aware, and empowered individuals.

Core Beliefs

  • Relationships are primary, particularly in this setting. Staff are sensitive to power struggles that impede the formation of positive relationships.
  • Student choice facilitates engagement and offers a sense of power to students.
  • All students learn at different rates. Bowers Academy offers an alternative setting to structure the delivery of curriculum around this concept.
  • The delivery of our curriculum must offer a significant departure from what students have already experienced and failed.
  • Bowers Academy strives to create a safe environment for students to make choices and establish independence.
  • A low student to teacher ratio is maintained.
