Monroe Demonstration Academy offers our scholars unique opportunities to engage in real-world learning through the MicroSociety model as productive members of our micro society, 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.
Through the MicroSociety model, our students can be teachers, lawyers, real estate agents, bankers, business owners, or even mayor! 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.
MicroSociety's mission is to create the ultimate project-based learning environment that motivates children to learn and succeed by engaging them in the connections between the classroom and the community, real life, and the future.
MicroSociety is an innovative curriculum that simulates real-world economic systems. It allows students to gain years of experience solving real-world problems, thinking critically, collaborating in diverse teams, and connecting subject matter and experiences in ways that foster creativity. From the time they enter the building each day, they are a community aiming to achieve sustainable change in their world and ours.

Beyond project-based learning or one day simulations, our real life business ventures and government agency activities are long-term, authentic, and interconnected. They inspire success. We help children find meaning and purpose in their education and prepare them to be discerning scholars as they proceed through higher education and ultimately into adulthood as productive, contributing community members and skilled innovators in a global economy.
