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 Systems (ELS) 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.

We are happy to announce that we have broken ground on our new site at 3551 N Ferrell St. in North Las Vegas.
Construction has experienced many delays, primarily due to the pandemic. However, we are excited to have our facility ready for students in the fall of 2022!

The report to compare personnel and services provided during prior year with those of the current year is under development by NDE and will be available in January 2022. See the memo from NDE.
Emergency Operations Plan
The development committee has reviewed the school's Emergency Operations Plan.
Nevada School Performance Ratings (NSPF) and accountability indicators were carried over for an additional year from the 2018-2019 reporting year (prior to the opening of Explore Academy - Las Vegas). However, State, District and school information that can be reported for the 2020-2021 school year (first year of operation for our school) is available in the Nevada Accountability Portal.
Read the SSP, also referred to as a Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP).
3/25/2022 - SSP Status Check
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.
