Student and Family Programs
The Student and Family Programs at the World Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (WAIE) consists of courses but also additional opportunities for personal growth and development of each member of our community through immersions, special programs, services, and much more. We’ve provided some of the key programs that we will provide that make WAIE a pathWAIE to success for students and families.
Student programs focus on young scholars who are in secondary education (grades 7 through 14), primary education (grades kindergarten through 6), and early education (all preschool ages). They include our academic courses for matriculating students but also include other offerings to help matriculating young scholars and guest students to our community in developing towards success.
Our student services are a growing offering of resources put together by our Center for Student CARE team who works towards providing holistic development opportunities for young scholars and their households.
At WAIE, we provide all-inclusive tuition that not only covers the cost of you participating in courses as a matriculating young scholar but also covers the cost of mental health, computer, internet, immersions, startup funds, and much more.
Courses at WAIE are conducted asynchronously for the majority of the content. Young scholars will have access to prescheduled online real-time lessons to deepen their understanding, tutoring sessions, and much more as they participate.
Our immersions provide students with educational, community-building, and specialization opportunities while they participate. They connect young scholars and guest students to industry and the global community for one-week to three-month experiences.
The LEAP Program
The Lion Entrepreneurship Acceleration Pathway (LEAP) Program is an intensive, in-person experience for matriculating young scholars to learn about entrepreneurship and generational wealth building. During grades 7 through 10, they will launch at least one (1) new venture with their peers or family members.
Mental fortitude and social-emotional skills are essential to the success of young scholars. We match you with a mental wellness clinician who supports you in not only any responsive care you may need or want but also supports you in building your toolkit to face any future challenges that you may face at different stages in life.
Food Security Program
Knowing how to maintain your health through eating healthy is important. However, more important than that is the ability to access the food necessary for a healthy life. As part of your participation as a young scholar, you’ll have access to funds that allow you to grocery shop and make meals for your time with the WAIE community.
Family programs focus on the parents and guardians of young scholars who are in secondary education (grades 7 through 14), primary education (grades kindergarten through 6), and early education (all preschool ages). They include our classes and workshops to help further develop their household and create generational wealth.
Our family services are a growing offering of resources put together by our Office of Family Engagement team who works towards providing holistic development opportunities for the families of young scholars and their households.
As part of our family services, you gain access to a free community for parents, guardians, and adult family members involved in the growth and success of young scholars at WAIE. You’ll be able to connect with and learn from one another.
Each year our Family Engagement team will hold a virtual conference for both WAIE families and guest families to participate in workshops on improving parenting skills, entrepreneurship, building generational wealth, and much more.
As part of the work of our Student CARE team, we work to procure resources to support the success of each family in WAIE when it comes to the acquisition of insurance, discounts on necessities, food and clothing resources, and much more.
