Growing successful global scholars while fostering a passion to learn, transform and navigate the world in which they live.
Monroe Demonstration Academy offers our scholars unique opportunities to engage in real-world learning through the microsociety model as productive members of our microsociety, Monrovia. Monroe scholars are encouraged to search for real-world applications for their learning, and our teachers use technology and project-based learning to create true 21st century academic experiences. In our microsociety, each scholar holds a job and contributes to the health and success of Monrovia, learning about citizenship, different professions, life skills, budgeting, and personal finance. Students also build strong relationships with each other and with their teachers through our TRIBES program, which places a strong emphasis on school community as a support and ensuring the healthy development for day-to-day struggles our scholars may face.
Monroe students can:
- Be a teacher, lawyer, real estate agent, banker, business owner, or even mayor in our Monrovia microsociety;
- Select from a wide variety of speciality courses and programs, including AP courses and electives; and
- Interact with a diverse group of peers, teachers, and school staff in a safe and engaging school environment.
“I am a Monroe Scholar, therefore, I am excellent.
We are what we repeatedly do, therefore, excellence is not an act but a habit.
I do not fear success but embrace it.
I believe impossible is nothing so I can achieve anything.
I am a Monroe Scholar; I am the change, seeking a respectful revolution not just for me but all humankind.”
