Monarch’s Life Academy is the practice center for all of life’s learning; including home-living, personal skills, community engagement, and employment. Through our 5 learner-operated, entrepreneurial enterprises, students translate academic learning into meaningful, functional skills and develop an understanding of participating in all aspects of the world around them; ensuring living, social, and career successes.
Life Academy opportunities include participating in one or more of the school-based enterprises, meeting with local professionals both on and off-campus, community-based exploration of business operations, opportunities to engage in generating ideas from conception to production for retail items, and participation in employment-related skills development through Employability classes. Learners engage in real-life work experiences in on-campus internships and off-campus externships while integrating life-skills practices in preparation for the world of work and interdependent living. Hands-on experiences in Monarch’s five enterprises enhance lives in meaningful ways.
