To facilitate placement, children are given reading and math assessments. This allows students to be grouped based on skill level. Students with exceptional talents will be placed into skill levels corresponding to assessment scores, regardless of age or grade.
Students are grouped by grade level for History and Science. These subjects are used to promote character development, leadership skills, and teamwork.
Maximum student teacher ratio is 10:1. All reading and math groups consist of no more than four students. The low student-teacher ratio allows for extraordinary learning gains during the academic year.
All teachers hold a bachelor’s degree and have a teaching degree or have extensive teaching experience. An emphasis is placed on continually training the teachers in the Academy's methodology and philosophies.
