Twilight Academy

IDEA's Twilight Academy is designed to improve student achievement through extended day programming that provides a variety of learning opportunities. 


Participating scholars finish their regular school day at IDEA and are then given a light snack or supper at 3:30 to fuel their bodies and brains for classes that begin at 4pm.


To be eligible for Twilight Academy classes, scholars must be currently enrolled at IDEA and may not have a history of altercations during the current school year. All applications will be subject to review by the administrative team.


Effective Monday, December 20, the safe passage shuttle will drop off scholars at the locations listed below. If you have any questions or safety concerns, please contact the Twilight team at
