Welcome to the Emerson Academy
Sowing seeds for the future
The Emerson Academy is a one-room schoolhouse where students can express their creative spirit through myriad avenues. We encourage students to explore their own innovative impulse by daring to be original.
The Emerson Academy, founded in 2001, is a unique small school located in Studio City. We provide a compassionate, yet challenging learning experience for students in elementary, middle, and high school. The Emerson Academy's curriculum and approach is dedicated to promoting self-esteem, academic confidence, and preparing students for a college career. The Emerson Academy celebrates the spirit of Ralph Waldo Emerson in principles, practice, and propriety.
It is our mission to provide a college preparatory education to students who have difficulty in traditional classrooms, or otherwise require alternative academic arrangements. We welcome students of ALL learning abilities. The Academy celebrates cultural diversity among all learners and encourages students to step into roles of leadership in their community.
To provide students with an integrated academic program in a compassionate setting, allowing for individual differences, while celebrating the importance of community and a commitment to excellence.
At the heart of success is the belief that all students can grow into their dreams through guidance, encouragement, and a healthy sense of self. Success has many contours, none of which can be shaped unless gently mentored through motivation and inspiration.
A road not walked is a landscape not seen. Our commitment is to provide an excellent education to students of all learning abilities, and to instill the love of learning for life through diligence and perseverance.
To develop a sense of accomplishment both intellectually and emotionally through innovative teaching and learning. To further inspire students to make positive contributions to a diverse community.
