The Academy program provides socially relevant, grade specific material for Scholars from 6th through to 12th grade, bolstering the learning experience of their respective schools.
Academics are at the core of the Academy Program. The Academy curriculum varies by grade-level and across the calendar year:
- Academic year — Scholars meet twice a week at the Scholar House by grade-level. The goal of the Academic Year program is to be additive to the coursework Scholars complete in their regular classrooms. In addition, 1:1 tutoring is provided to those students who need additional support in a given academic subject.
- Summer session — Scholars meet five days a week over the course of five weeks. The Summer Academy is designed to be “anticipatory,” preparing them for the upcoming academic year, as well as “exploratory," allowing students the opportunity to discover new interests and passions.
