Supportive Learning Community

The REAL Journey Academies community will be focused on an on-going process that develops and supports meaningful relationships between all members (students, parents, teachers, and administrative staff) to ensure that all students will be prepared for college success.

Personal Development

The REAL Journey Academies community will be focused on the personal development of all its members (students, parents, teachers, and administrative staff) to ensure that all students are prepared for college success.
