Our program provides a challenging academic program in a nurturing, adventure-filled environment from pre-k4 through fifth grade. Cultivating a desire for learning starts here with balancing traditional instruction, experiential learning, and critical thinking. Besides offering a strong curriculum in the traditional basics (reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and history), other classes such as music, art, Spanish, research and library skills, physical education, gardening, agriculture and technology complete a well-rounded educational and relational experience. Other learning experiences at Achievers Academy include a variety of extra curricular activities, after-school programs, field trips, etc.
EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
Science & Technology, interpreted through Engineering & the Arts, all based in Mathematical Elements. STEAM provides the framework for a new approach towards learning – replacing rote memorization and testing with methods that are dynamic, student-centered, project-based, problem-solving, messy, and exciting.
Children love to create visual art. Visual art experiences help children develop skills such as critical thinking, self-expression, problem-solving, communication and collaboration. Our teachers focus on process-based art education, in which the experience of creating art is valued over the end product.
Achievers in Action
Dance, Music & Performing Arts
The Academy’s Fine Arts program develops the creative potential in each student, a process which is both intellectual and experiential. A rich, varied experience in the arts is essential to educating the whole child.
The Physical Education program is designed to introduce students to a wide range of individual and group skills that improve different motor abilities. The Physical Education program promotes healthy lifestyles in young people, taking into account the physical, social, and intellectual development of young children.
Gardening & Agriculture
Students engage in growing successful school gardens while using the garden environment for effective learning and enhancing the connections between gardens and good nutrition, and understanding the role of agriculture in our food system.
Technology is an essential tool for teaching at Achievers Academy. The educational technology curriculum educates students to meet challenges with logic and creativity using a variety of technologies.
Though technology is a valuable tool, we strive to balance the digital and non-digital realms in our students' lives. We continue to look at technology as a way to better accomplish what we have always tried to do at Achievers Academy: help children develop into thoughtful, articulate, and empathetic world citizens.
