Grow Academy Information

The Grow Academy (formerly Lion's Den) joins with families and our community to assist students in developing skills to become entrepreneurs and self-sufficient adults who will succeed and contribute responsibly in a global society.   Mission: Millcreek's Grow Academy program provides academic, artistic and cultural enrichment opportunities for children, particularly students who attend high-poverty and low performing schools, to meet state and local standards in core academic subjects, such as reading, math and science.  The purpose is to provide students with homework assistance and a broad array of activities that can complement their regular academic programs, while also promoting educational services to the families of participating children.

Vision: To nurture a positive environment utilizing the necessary resources to ensure each student reaches his/her highest learning potential through educational, cultural, and social involvement.
