We have high expectations for our students and offer a high level of support to help children reach their full potential. We individualize learning based on regular analysis of student progress throughout each school year, and our students are successful.
These core subjects form the basis of our K–8 curriculum. Students receive 100 minutes of instruction in Mathematics and 60 minutes of instruction in English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies each school day.
We help students develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Our young scholars learn phonics, grammar, and comprehension skills, and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities. Foundation Academy students comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction texts. The program emphasizes writing as a process, and the skills that will be tested in Ohio.
We balance fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures that students understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as students move from basic skills toward algebra. Students learn by seeing mathematical concepts applied to the world around them.
We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances.
We offer a well-rounded education including Art, PE, Spanish, STEM, and extracurricular sports. This allows us to reach out to the strengths of each student and to give each student unique experiences across diverse backgrounds.
Art projects allow students to explore their individual creativity, while art appreciation develops skills for understanding form, style, and structure.
Organized physical education gets children exercising regularly. We teach students important concepts of teamwork and sportsmanship, as well as promoting general health and well-being.
The benefits of early exposure to a second language have been well-documented. Learning a second language can create greater overall linguistic awareness for stronger skills in the child’s native language, can improve memory and listening skills, and can even help with multi-tasking and focus.
Science, Technology, and Math are extremely important in the world today. By being at the forefront of these, our school can help prepare the students for becoming designers and implementers of complex plans to solve real world problems.
