The Explore Academy Educational Model
Innovative and creative as never before seen in education, the Explore Academy Educational Model reinvents the entire learning process. For more information about the Explore Academy experience, visit the home page.
History of Explore Academy - Las Vegas
The first Explore Academy opened its doors as a New Mexico state-authorized charter school in August 2014. Explore Academy - Las Vegas was authorized by the State Public Charter School Authority (SPCSA) in 2019 and opened its doors in August 2020.
Explore LVS partners with Explore Learning Network (ELN) to implement the innovative Explore Learning model, an educational framework based on choice that promotes student growth and responsibility while providing an individualized educational path for each student.

Nevada Accountability Report Card
Nevada School Performance Ratings (NSPF) and accountability indicators were carried over from the 2018-2019 reporting year (prior to the opening of Explore Academy - Las Vegas). However, school information for 2021-2022, the second year of operations, is available at Explore Academy - Nevada Accountability. State, district, and individual school data for all Nevada public schools are available in the Nevada Accountability Portal.
School Performance Plan (SPP)
Read the SSP, also referred to as a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP).
Please note that the priorities are identical for both levels due to a small staff at a growing school. All professional learning and coaching will be aligned.
including the annual report per NRS 387.12468, which compares personnel and services provided during prior year with those of the current year.
Explore Academy - Las Vegas has a one-to-one technology program as each student has a Chromebook. Teachers/staff have either a laptop or Chromebook. The school provides a device and/or hotspot for students who are eligible for such support. This reduces the complications of transitioning to distance education in the event of an emergency.
