Acadmey Kids - Preschool (2.5 years - 4 years)
Calling all kids! Come and explore the FUN of school as we study our letters, colors, shapes, and numbers. Children will explore the worlds of animals and plants. They will do fun experiments as they are introduced to functional numerical skills and the wonders of science. They will develop new vocabulary as they learn about community helpers and family members and will be encouraged to use simple reasoning to express everyday occurrences. They will build on their vocabulary skills by discussing stories being read and will begin to understand and follow simple directions. Our daily activities always reinforce age-appropriate social development. The students’ multiple skills will be enhanced by singing songs and playing relative games while incorporating routine structure into their activities and daily schedules. Our teachers encourage both independence, as your child learns to verbalize wants and needs and, very importantly, the role of inter-dependence as children are introduced to taking turns. This class with its educational experiences is the perfect way to introduce your child to the wonders of learning!
Acadmey Kindergarten (Gr K - Gr 1)
Sparkle your child’s imagination! It’s time to jump on the STEAM bandwagon for a sizzling Summer Kindergarten through Second Grade at The Academy! We will study rocks, plants, mixtures and solutions. In our final week, we will have an amazing and deliciously-fun Build-It Festival. The Festival will include a wide assortment of classroom learning-station activities which focus on mathematics relating to construction, geometric challenges, and spatial visualization. Activities will connect to the real world and even potential careers. Free exploration sets the stage for such mathematical challenges as Create-A-Shape, Bridge Design, Symmetry, Tangrams, and lots of amazing structures! Background on geometry is provided. Special materials include Lego’s, boxes, pattern blocks, more boxes, and more boxes. This program sounds like great fun, doesn’t it? We will also work on: Reading: letters, sight-words, fluency, and comprehension Math: writing numbers through 20, measurement, greater than & less than, and geometrical shapes & patterns Art: color mixing, water and oil painting outside in the park, create mosaics, and decorating T-shirts Music: dancing, singing Yoga: stretch and learn balance and focus Fieldtrips: The trips may not be far-away and exotic, but they will be fun and educational. Summers are very popular at The Academy. Whether your child has just finished or will start Kindergarten in the fall, this program will inspire them to do their best, because doing your best is fun!!
Summer STEM Mornings (2nd grade - 8th grade)
Some elementary school children struggled this year. Some did only what was demanded of them. Some sailed through the year without even trying. The rest fell somewhere in between. Regardless of where your 2ndd thru 8th grader* landed, our Summer STEM Mornings program will support, encourage, challenge, and motivate them. Whoever touted the old refrain “learning isn’t fun” never experienced The Academy of 21st Century Learning! Let’s take a peek at our one month program: Math: through Algebra Academic Reading Science: STEM projects & EXPERIMENTS!! For three hours a morning, Monday – Friday, 9AM – 12PM, your kids will laugh, learn, experiment, and challenge themselves. (No summer learning loss for your kids, but don’t tell them!) PLUS, over your family dinner table, you will hear about dissected cow eyes, frogs that dance,and a myriad of other scientific topics that will have them excited about learning. We know many of you were with us the last couple of years so … Welcome Back!!! *Unless special placement is approved by teacher
