The core of AXL Academy is our crew.  With the belief the classroom is an extension of our community, our crew culture is developed and sustained through practices that bring the community together, promote shared understandings and encourage all community members to be active participants and leaders. 

Each crew establishes crew goals, goes on expeditions, are active learners and together build the fundamentals of teamwork, collaboration, emotional growth and social growth. Crew allows students to build positive connections with their peers and with their crew leader.

All scholars from K-8 experience and benefit from our Crew culture. 

Whether establishing the fundamentals of a writing assignment and having a fellow crew member proofread to working on large scale group projects, Crew teaches students real-world skills in addition to the social and emotional support of the community-environment. 

Once a week the crew meets for community meeting to celebrate successes and set goals for the week.
