Each student is assigned to an advisory group that meets daily and creates a place where students can seek assistance and pursue growth.
With every student participating in 9 or more hour school days, Equipo students uphold a strong sense of commitment. Maintaining this commitment comes in the form of our student’s perseverance in their classes, responsibility keeping up their grades, and their participation in school events, clubs, and other various engagement opportunities.
Their commitment goes beyond just school. Students are committed to establishing great character. Developing their integrity, work ethic, and compassion for others, Equipo students work to develop important social skills and character traits. With a staff committed to their students, these students will be guided to grow into a person that is ready to take on the world up until their graduation day.
“Attending Equipo was one of my first and biggest commitments of my life but this commitment made me into the person I am today.” – Aaron Bartee

Equipo Academy has partnered with 3Square to provide free lunch to eligible students.
Three Square is a Southern Nevada food bank that provides food assistance to communities within the Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark Counties. Three Square reaches out to these communities and their families in order to solve hunger problems throughout these counties. Equipo Academy, one of many Three Square’s partners, receives such food assistance in order to sustain students in lower class communities. Working with local businesses, the gaming industry, and many other school districts, Three Square wishes to solve hunger in communities in need.
