As Corvian's director and founder, Stacey's strong commitment to educational opportunities for all children and young adults shines in everything that she does. She values the importance of smaller class sizes, an individualized approach to educating the whole child though arts based education, and providing a flexible and supportive working environment to passionate, creative teachers. Stacey wants Corvian Community School to provide this for the children of our community. Stacey is committed providing research-based, brain-friendly instruction in classrooms that emphasize a commitment to the arts, service to the community, a rigorous, differentiated curriculum, and a safe, nurturing climate for learning.
Under Stacey's leadership, Corvian grew from a low-income private school with 15 students to a K-12 charter school with 1300 students, achieved accreditation by Cognia, obtained three tax-exempt bonds to build brand new, state-of-the-art high school and elementary school facilities, and athletic complex. Stacey's vision and hard work was recognized by the community when Corvian won an Exceeded NC Academic Growth Award (2017-2018), a Wipe Out Waste Award (2017), and a Heavy Hitter Award (2018).
Stacey is pleased to be able to live out her beliefs and commitments as the founder and leader of an Corvian Community School.
