When a child is struggling with their learning, their skill acquisition suffers, and their self-confidence and self-concept are at stake. There isn’t a moment to spare in providing the support they need. Our founding Academy program helps students understand their own unique way of learning, builds on strengths, and develops transferrable tools and strategies that empower learning and open up a world of possibilities.
We teach kids how to learn.
The primary focus of our Academy program is to understand the root cause of each child's learning difficulties. We then develop a customized learning plan to effectively address the specific areas of need while leveraging natural strengths to return joy and confidence to the learning experience. We then coach each student to develop a personalized series of tools and strategies which can be applied across multiple environments and contexts.
Classrooms become communities.
With extraordinarily low student-teacher ratios, each child's class naturally becomes a close-knit community that offers acceptance and support among peers. Our teachers focus on embracing diversity, celebrating kindness and showcasing success. In doing do, they transform classrooms into supportive learning communities.
Remediation is our core.
Remediating learning difficulties is one of our specialties. With homeroom teachers tailoring their mentoring approach and academic instruction to the way each student learns, and Literacy and Numeracy Specialists leveraging diagnostic assessment and performance data to develop personalized supports, our school is committed to empowering learning for every child.
In their own words...
When you come here, you become a totally different person. You're who you are on the inside. You're who you want to be.
The biggest outcome of the CA experience is my child's belief he can do whatever he chooses to do.
I saw how much CA focused on learning strategies and teaching people how to learn to maximize what they can do, and knew it was for me.
