The Accelerated Learning Academy: Society of New Thinking


New Thinking Workshops
On Sundays all students participate in the New Thinking Workshop designed to allow students to collaborate, innovate, and address the world’s most pressing concerns through their specialized track of STEM. Students work together to identify societal problems and developed practical solutions. The 2016-2017 ALA program culminated with groups of participants making presentations about their solutions to issues, such as climate change, xenophobia, inequality, and immigration.

Society of New Thinking
Students who complete the Accelerated Learning Academy will be inducted into the ALA’s Society of New Thinking, an organization comprised of youth who are critical & creative thinkers engaged in the STEM field. Through membership in the Society of New Thinking, students receive an award and ongoing opportunities to network with peers and professionals in the STEM field.
