Our students are on a path toward college and career. We have high expectations for our students and offer a high level of support to help children reach their full potential. We individualize learning based on regular analysis of student progress throughout each school year.
These core subjects form the basis of our K–8 curriculum. Students receive extended instruction and learning time in language arts and math.
We help students develop vital communication skills, while inspiring a love of literature. Younger children learn phonics and grammar and prepare for reading through multi-sensory activities, while older students learn to comprehend and analyze both fiction and non-fiction. The program emphasizes classic works and writing as a process.
We balance fundamental skills with critical thinking and problem solving. Our active approach ensures that students understand the realities that underlie mathematical concepts. Games and animations bring concepts to life, while challenge problems, regular practice, and review ensure mastery. We build from the concrete to the abstract as students move from basic skills toward algebra.
Our Science program uses hands-on experiments to support the systematic study of life, Earth, and the physical sciences. We nurture curiosity as students practice observation and analytical skills. Students learn how our understanding of the world is shaped by ongoing scientific and technological advances.
A truly well-rounded education must nourish the body and soul as well as the mind. We believe in the value of exposing children to the arts as well as to opportunities for exercise and physical competition.
Art projects allow students to explore their individual creativity, while art appreciation develops skills for understanding form, style, and structure.
Organized physical education gets children exercising regularly. It teaches students important concepts of teamwork and sportsmanship, as well as promoting general health and well-being.
Northwest Academy is open to all students and committed to supporting at-risk students and their families. Please contact us if you have children who may have a disability and need special education.
