Frick Impact Academy Gladiators will act as agents of change by exploring an innovative, rigorous and responsive learning environment where they feel safe and confident to take risks, think critically, and navigate college, career, and life with success.


    • FAMILY: FIA addresses the social and emotional needs of students by using the “it takes a village” concept. We partner with parents and see them as leaders to ensure that each student achieves success. Through our small learning communities (advisory structure) parents and teachers are mentors and advocates for students.
    • INNOVATE: FIA is dedicated to ensuring our students are able to succeed anywhere so we design learning experiences for students that challenge their thinking. Through cross-curricular collaborative experiences students will challenge and reimagine current systems that will impact generations to come.
    • ACTION: FIA students and staff are committed to annihilating the stereotypes that have historically plagued the youth of Oakland through advocacy, accessing power by exercising voice, self efficacy, and learning techniques necessary for making meaningful and lasting change.
