“You’ve got to ….
Dance like there’s no one watching,
Love like you can never get hurt,
Sing like there’s no one listening,
Live like it is heaven on earth,
And teach from the heart to be heard”

Vista Academy believes that all students can learn and move on to post secondary options and careers of their choice. It is our position that we are relentless and passionate about teaching and helping students excel academically, socially, and physically. Our teaching and staff core are a part of a team that has mastered competency and standards based instruction, think out the box, and build unparalleled mentoring relationships with students. Our teaching and staff core are lifelong learners and exemplifies high levels of professional growth.
Our Vista community believes in the vision that we must “teach from the heart to be heard.” This means that we have high expectations and give students the tools to meet those expectations as well as give them the time to learn and practice what we expect from them. The Vista Academy teaching and staff core are a critical part of our student’s academic puzzle. Many of our students are trying to put together their lives, and to get back on track after they have given up.
Our teachers and staff will meet them with an unwavering positive attitude; with passion that we bring to our craft on a daily basis and stop the viscous cycles that many of our students are experiencing because for some this may be their final opportunity. We have the arduous task of re-engaging students within the educational process for the purpose of producing scholars, world class citizens, global thinkers,who are relentless in their pursuit of an education.
