Owensboro Innovation Academy

Top 25 District of Innovation

Owensboro Public Schools prides itself on being named a National Top 25 District of Innovation by the National Superintendents Association (AASA). 

By incorporating innovation in both teaching and learning, our district has created a learning community for all students that utilizes cutting-edge teaching and technology that fosters an environment of collaborative leadership, trust and open communication.


In 2015, our district opened the Owensboro Innovation Academy as another way to provide traditional learning. Students learn through project-based assignments and immerse themselves in hands-on projects to actively learn valuable material.

The first graduating class of the Owensboro Innovation Academy graduated in 2018. As a result of the success of the high school model, the district opened the Owensboro Innovation Middle School in the fall of 2019 for students in grades six through eight.
