SOUTHERN INDIANA (WHAS11) – July 31st will mark the first day of school for many students in Southern Indiana, including those at Renaissance Academy in Clarksville. The Academy is a “tech-school,” designed for those 21st Century students.
“Renaissance is a great model for learning, it turns the traditional model upside down that’s the way we like to think about it,” said Director Brian Allred.
The idea behind Renaissance is to incorporate modern day technology with the traditional Indiana state education curriculum. The title of Principle has been replaced with “Director” and teachers are referred to as “Facilitators.”
“This is what’s going to make teaching successful, this is what's going to make schools successful,” said Facilitator Connie Holstine.
The school is the first of its kind in Kentuckiana. This year the school will only host high school freshman, the director has plans to expand the student base in the years to come.
“I am so looking forward to tomorrow, it’s been a long process getting ready for it but i am so excited i don’t know if I’ll sleep tonight.”
