Partner Schools

Compass Academy Network is proud to partner with area school districts to help students achieve more academic success, continue to develop a strong character, and build confidence to achieve their goals. 

CAN operates with the belief that students benefit when engaged community members work together to help support student needs.  It is not intended to replace any school program, but rather to work as a support structure to the work school districts are already doing to prepare their students for success.

Partner Schools work with CAN to help deliver the best experience for students by providing feedback used to track and evaluate the program’s success.

For our Partner Schools, the Compass Academy Network helps:

  • Prevent summer slide for students, allowing teachers in the fall to build on continued success.
  • Supports individual student success through extra academic, social, and emotional support.
  • Continue to build better test scores.
  • Help develop student leaders within Partner Schools to positively impact their peers.
  • Provide qualifying Partner Schools with an additional discretionary funding source.

CAN Partner Grant – Partner Schools who have at least 15 students complete the summer program are awarded a $5,000 grant to put towards middle school needs of their choice.

What Partners Have to Say

“We find the program to have great value for our students and look forward to being a partner in the journey!”

Quote from a Partner District for the Joplin Program

“It has been an impactful experience for our students and one that I truly believe will be a positive memory as they grow into adulthood.”

“Our Board is very supportive of the program and the opportunities it has afforded our students.”

“We have used some of the money to initiate leadership activities and the Compass Academy students are meeting as a leadership team.”

“I am so, so grateful that our kids got to be included in this program.”

“What a great partnership and inspiration for the summer! Thank you, Compass Academy, for enrichment with all of our kids in Southeast Kansas! Looking forward to a future relationship to educate young minds and increase their expectations!”
