Message from our Head of School

Welcome to AXIS International Academy! I am Kari, an AXIS co-founder and the Head of School. I could not be more excited about AXIS International Academy opening in our community. In a few short months, we will have the privilege of putting the AXIS mission into action and providing your children (and mine) with a top-notch bilingual education with Core Knowledge and Singapore Math that considers the whole child. We are counting down the days! Our teachers will receive nearly three weeks of professional development before school starts to empower them to teach your children at a high level. This includes a trip to Utah for the Annual Utah Dual Immersion Institute for excellent training from experts from around the world. Because of recent events, we know school safety is on your mind, as it is ours. AXIS will have strong safety policies and procedures in place, and more information regarding safety will be shared throughout the summer.
We are planning many summer events and we would love to see you there. Be sure to watch our calendar for a listing of events, meetings and summer registration days. 

All my best,



Kari Anne Calarco
