What We Offer
21st Century Education For 21st Century Kids!
Colossal Academy is an award-winning innovative micro-school. We are a Middle School for curious and active tweens and teens. We are located in the M.A.S.S District in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Through hands-on learning experiences and project-based approaches, students are actively engaged with their education. Colossal Academy balances curriculum rigor as an affiliate of the accreditated FLVS (Florida Virtual School) and practical life skills to help children self-actualize. Practical life skills are learned through farming/ permaculture, surfing, skateboarding, Home Economics, and Social Emotional Learning. Students can choose to be on a hybrid school model or a full 5-day program.
Colossal Academy is a unique option
Farm Days at Colossal Academy
Why this mom enrolled her son
Due to the small class size, each child's interests are able to be seen, cultivated, and explored. We welcome questions that lead to the process of inquiry so that we can follow the interest of the learner vs. the traditional classroom.
Real Life Education
Students engage in cooking, farming, organizational skills, drafting, website development, and video editing and so much more. These skills are highly transferable and desirable for the 21st Century!
Colossal Academy spends a great deal of time in and around the community at parks, libraries, beaches, skateparks, museums, etc. PBE connects students to the natural world.
Colossal Academy changed our trajectory in the exact ways I have been praying for for years.
Ms. Shiren has brought a spark to my child’s eyes that had faded in traditional school and ignited his love of learning. She has brought on equally brilliant teachers to teach various subjects. It feels like the school you could only dream of coming to fruition.
I was constantly searching for an curriculum that went beyond teaching core subjects. I wanted an education that cultivates gifts and skills in order to contribute positively to our society. I have found that curriculum through Colossal Academy.
