6th Grade

Core Academy

  • • The goal of the Academy is for students to become more confident and skilled in all academic areas, with a specific focus on math and language arts.
  • The classes will be smaller, and having fewer students per teacher will allow for more teacher support for each student.
  • • We will also focus on developing good study habits and organizational skills.
  • • Academy students will also have classes in science, social studies, life fitness, and will have an exploratory period.
