The vision for Young Academy goes far beyond academic excellence.  Our mission is to develop scholars that are problem-solving, compassionate stewards of our global community – the kind of humanitarian leaders who rise up when the need is greatest and create a means to end the suffering. To achieve this mission, we develop the critical thinking abilities of our global citizens and strive to instill in them strong leadership skills and a philanthropic heart.

Recently, Texas faced a great challenge, and our scholars and Firehawk Family responded.  They gathered and sent truck-loads of much needed supplies & clothing, organized fund drives, and reached out to relief organizations and schools in the effected areas to offer homes to those without, a school to displaced students, and themselves to help staff relief distribution efforts.  From the Hurricane Harvey disaster relief, to our year round support of Global Girls Education in Africa – and multiple scholar-led initiatives in between – Young Scholars, from our Kindergarteners through our High School Seniors, not only know the importance of service to others, but lead by example.
