Physical Education & Health and Wellness

The Academy’s physical education program is designed to achieve every individual student’s health and fitness goals, whether for fun or fitness, a beginner or enthusiast, our premier facility is an excellent academic environment that encourages bodily and kinesthetic learning for the overall success, self-confidence and safety of all our students. The Physical Education program takes a trimester each year to discuss the importance of health and wellness from a nutrition and behavioral point of view. Fueling students’ physical goals, students have the opportunity to begin a lifelong journey of healthy choices with good nutrition.

Spanish

We are beginning an exciting journey together as your child learns more about other languages and cultures around the world. The Spanish program will be centered on a communicative approach that incorporates the four main language skills of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. The material will be divided into units. Throughout the course of the year, each unit taught will be based on a specific age-appropriate topic and will provide ample opportunities for the children to explore the Hispanic language and culture.

Technology

Technology activities, Internet research, virtual manipulatives, and multimedia resources allow students to explore unanswered questions. 3D printing allows students to create real-world objects and allows for cross-curricular instruction.
