Bridge (Grades 2-3) 12:00PM – 2:00PM
American Academy’s Bridge (Grade 2) and Bridge+ (Grade 3) program is developed for students who are bridging to the Academy next year. Students will work closely with the teacher to learn core subjects through projects that are developed specifically for them. We have found that students become deeply engaged in their learning when they have options on the projects that they choose.
Academy Program (Grades 4-8, separated into specific age groups) 12:00PM – 2:00PM
Includes Essential Discourse Classes (core-subject project-based classes) and Social & Academic Clubs
Essential Discourses & Projects is American Academy of Strategic Education’s cornerstone academic program. These captivating and engaging discourses meet California state standards and provide an excellent opportunity for students to be personally and deeply connected to important core subject matter. Students sharpen their ability to articulate and defend positions, consider different points of view, and enlist and evaluate evidence. Essential Discourses & Projects prioritizes the learner’s acquisition of knowledge and skills through active dialogue rather than passive teacher-centered lectures.
American Academy’s Club Hub – social and academic student-led clubs provide excellent opportunities for students to develop their verbal communication skills, develop their leadership talents, apply their cross-curricular knowledge, and make real-world connections.
