Mission Statement

Dida Academy is redefining education through a self-directed, homeschool hybrid model. We provide an education that serves students above bureaucratic interests. Our unique environment encourages students to follow their innate curiosity, learn through experience and build meaningful relationships. Through dedicated mentorship, we strive to guide young people on a journey towards finding a fulfilling present and a meaningful future.

Description

Dida Academy is an alternate educational organization that seeks to promote self-directed learning for teens by allowing them to harness their inner intellectual curiosity and drive their own education in their preferred direction. We recognize the struggle of the children who feel forced to mould into the conventional education system and offer them a safe space where creativity is valued over competition. At Dida, students have the time and freedom to discover the passion and joy in learning. They are offered, but never forced, to participate in subjects that are considered core competencies (math, reading and writing etc.). However, our self-directed methods allow students to learn at their own pace and absorb information in a deep meaningful way.
 Dida facilitators provide coaching and resources to support students on their preferred learning path. In addition, they offer close mentorship to students to help them build self-awareness, collaboration skills and personal accountability. We curate activities and guest visitors that expose students to exciting opportunities and career paths. While at Dida students will interact with a host of community members that are the best and brightest in their fields. Providing students with extensive knowledge and expertise, our staff and volunteers give students information that can be transformed into deep and meaningful learning.
