We embrace a student-centered philosophy of education

At Maggio Multicultural Academy, we embrace a student-centered philosophy of education that recognizes the unique potential and diverse learning styles of every student. We firmly believe that all students can learn and have the right to an education that meets their individual needs. Our approach is rooted in active learning, where students take charge of their educational journey while teachers serve as facilitators.

About Us


Empowering minds. Inspiring futures.
Our mission at Maggio Multicultural Academy is to inspire youth to believe in their limitless potential. We empower our students to have unwavering faith in their abilities, encouraging them to set ambitious goals and pursue their dreams with determination. We are dedicated to helping them discover their unique talents, fostering an environment where their God-given abilities can flourish. By igniting their passion for learning and personal growth, we aim to equip them with the tools necessary to reach their greatest potential.


1. Create the world’s most successful system of learning, instruction, and mentorship that meets the needs of every student, family, and teacher. Successful in learning how to learn, not what to learn. Successful in acquiring the confidence and skills that will bring greater opportunities. Successful in recognizing real-world problems and having the desire to be part of the solution.

2. Provide access to education and employment opportunities to youth around the world.

3. Create a vast network of programs and partners that will work collaboratively to help those in need gain access to education and to learn the skills necessary to find meaningful employment and end generational poverty.


Our teachers are facilitators, and our students are the teachers. According to the National Training Laboratory, most students only remember about 10% of what they read from textbooks but retain nearly 90% of what they learn through teaching others. We are creating leaders, not test takers who can apply their knowledge to the world around them through project and performance based learning.

We emphasize the application of knowledge

Our educational model draws inspiration from a combination of research-based models, most importantly Dewey, Vygotsky, Piaget, and Hill while also incorporating innovative approaches to foster a well-rounded educational experience. Project-based learning lies at the heart of our curriculum, as we understand that students learn best through hands-on experiences and by actively creating. We emphasize the application of knowledge, recognizing that true power lies in the ability to use what is learned in practical, relevant ways. Our program is built on nurturing a growth mindset, developing entrepreneurial skills, and fostering leadership qualities in our students. We prioritize problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity as essential traits for children to cultivate from an early age.

— Philosophy

We embrace a student-centered philosophy of education

At our academy, traditional models of education are challenged as our students lead their own learning instead of merely following abstract knowledge. Because instructors play the role of facilitators, students can become each other’s instructors through collaboration and teamwork. Through our comprehensive educational approach, we equip our students with essential life skills and values:

Empowering GenZ

Our academy strives to create a nurturing educational environment that empowers students to become confident, compassionate, and well-rounded individuals who are equipped to navigate the challenges of the world and make a positive impact. For this reason, we must ensure that the entire school community understands, believes, and commits to this philosophy of education. Therefore, collaboration among staff, advisors, and parents is paramount in fostering student success.

When our educators and parents embody confidence and determination, they become powerful role models, inspiring our children to embrace their own capabilities and strive for excellence. By nurturing a collective mindset of belief and success, we create an environment where every student can flourish and reach their full potential.

At Maggio Multicultural Academy, we recognize the significance of a growth mindset and actively promote its practice within our school community. We firmly believe that for our children to thrive, it is essential that those who teach and guide them in their daily lives have unwavering belief in their own abilities and potential for success.
