Welcome to Story Academy: Where imaginations run free!
Welcome to Story Academy: Where imaginations run free!

  

OUR STORY

The Louvre Museum in France, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, or the Shaolin Temples of Japan. There are few things in life exciting as traveling to other countries. At Story Academy we love to travel, discover new places, experience new adventures and taste new foods. What we love most of all is getting to share that passion with you! 

We started Story Academy as a place where children can create personalized books about new destinations their imaginations can travel to around the globe. 

With Story Academy, children tap their creativity to make their own adventures. Each experience is unique, and we like to think a little magical.

LET THEM PERSONALIZE THEIR OWN BOOKS

"Lost in Paris" is the first volume of the "My Adventures with Leo and Max" series. It takes place in the famous city of Paris, where one of our friends mysteriously vanishes. 

Leveraging our technology, your children will personalize their adventure with Leo and Max, playing detectives within the sights and sounds of Paris. By the end of the book, they will learn a bit more about the country, its history, its monuments, and even some yummy local treats.

 Your child can choose to create the stories as a handsome boy character...

 

 

 

 

Or as a beautiful girl character… 

 

 

 

 

WHO CAN CREATE THEIR OWN ADVENTURE?

Our first series is recommended for kids 4 to 8 years old. While some children will enjoy using Story Academy on their own to create amazing adventures, we encourage parents to join in the fun. Imagine sharing the experience with your child while creating their very own Story Academy book. And the best part? Seeing their face light up when their book arrives, and the excitement it brings every time they read it.

WHY IS TRAVELING SO IMPORTANT?

Research finds traveling helps children to stay curious and to welcome change. Other proven benefits include having a higher self-awareness and self-esteem, as well as a cultural sensitivity.

However, almost 65% of the US population have never traveled outside of the country. With the power of the internet and some magical technology, we pledge to help families discover new countries and destinations by bringing the adventure right into your home.

 

OUR TEAM

My son Indy is my biggest inspiration in my life. I decided to start Story Academy, after leaving a 20 year career in marketing.  I wanted to spend more time with my son and create something we could work on together. Story Academy captures my love of travel, storytelling and reading. I've assembled a team of like-minded collaborators from around the globe to work together on this amazing project.

OUR PLEDGE TO LITERACY

Story Academy is dedicated to literacy and helping kids get excited about reading. We pledge to give a portion of our proceeds to "Reading Partners," a nationwide organization that offers one-on-one tutoring programs to children who have fallen behind in reading. 


REWARDS

1. A surprise gift for "Kickstart Us" backers.

2. Each book comes with an annual subscription, free shipping to 48 US States, activities sheets such as coloring pages as art therapy, easy recipes and more. 

3. Custom illustrated portraits for $249 backers.





Risks and challenges

Story Academy was an idea sparked by a love of travel, reading and technology. Inspired by my 9 year-old son’s imagination, his love of storytelling and his treasured tablet, I created Story Academy. 

Because we value the Kickstarter community to provide us genuine feedback and support, we’ve decided to bring this exclusive offer to you. The success of this project will help us deliver a high quality product while we continue to work on our current and future projects that include adding more destinations, stories and languages. Every project has some level of risk, and ours is no different. With the project funded successfully, we’ll start shipping during the summer. We don’t expect delays, but will keep you updated on anything that may come up.
