Tidbit # 20- The Benefits of a Scholars Academy Education

August 8, 2023

Are you ready to maximize your scholar’s potential and open the door to a world of possibilities? Are you wondering what sets us apart at Scholars Academy for the Gifted? This remarkable educational opportunity provides students the space and resources to fully explore their interests, hone their skills, and make meaningful connections with others.

At this exceptional academy, our teachers facilitate close-knit classroom learning experiences featuring teacher-led sessions, self-paced acceleration opportunities in key content areas, and a blended learning framework with myriad resources to help scholars reach social-emotional growth, 21st Century skill development, and gain hands-on experience through science labs.

In our small class sizes, students can really shine and find success at their own pace. We understand that every student learns differently and needs different levels of guidance. That’s why we have designed our classrooms to offer personalized attention with plenty of time for open discussion, collaboration between peers, one on one guidance from teachers when needed – all while keeping healthy boundaries between school staff and students.

Each year we create an engaging curriculum based on both national standards as well as our own unique set of scholarship goals. Our goal is to nurture every scholar’s strengths so they may achieve their fullest potential. Our classes are infused with exciting project-based learning opportunities that challenge each student to think critically about what they’re studying and how it applies in real-life scenarios. And just as importantly – we strive to keep things fun!

At the Scholars Academy for the Gifted – every student is encouraged to be curious; connect with peers; become part of a real community; express themselves through creative projects; develop problem-solving skills; build respect for diverse perspectives; use technology responsibly; learn from failure; celebrate successes; practice resilience; and most importantly – dream big! If these are the values you want your learner exposed to then call us today or take a tour online so you can see how our scholars academy could be an ideal fit for your family!
