Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning We believe a traditional approach to learning gives students the best foundation for their future success in high school, college, and beyond. We use Spalding phonics and Saxon math in our advanced curriculum. Our traditional methods include regular homework, memorization of math facts, and reward for individual achievement. Parents are welcome on campus and play a vital role in their children's success.
