Executive Administrative Assistant
At Mighty Oak Academy
Portland, Louisville, KY
Mighty Oak Academy is a new community private school that is seeking to build a new educational model that focuses on the whole child. We want to bring together all the adults in a child’s life, including families, educators, and health providers to help them become the best version of themselves. As a part of Love City Inc. love is a foundational core belief for all our students, families, and educators. We believe that if we can teach children to love themselves and their neighbors, they can change their futures and the world.
Our approach has three basic beliefs:
Mighty Oak Academy opened in January 2021 in the old Mackin building in the Portland neighborhood of Louisville Kentucky with 27 students grades K – 8. This fall we expect to welcome 80 students throughout those same grades. We are actively seeking accreditation to add high school in the next couple of years.
The Portland neighborhood is located on the west side of downtown Louisville. It is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city. Community and family run deep in the neighborhood with many families living here for generations. Our families are highly involved in the school. There is also a volunteer requirement for our parents as part of their agreement for students to attend Mighty Oak. The demographics of the neighborhood show a diverse population of 63% white and 37% African American. While 40% of the neighborhood lives below the federal poverty line, the community in Portland is strong with people looking out for each other and helping where they can. Mighty Oak Academy is in the historic Mackin building on 26th St.
