What is a Microschool?

A microschool is a small,  private school or alternative form of education in which students receive instruction in core subject areas (Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies) from one or more teachers at a location outside the home. Some students complete assignments at home on/during off days/times.

 Our microschool is the ideal solution for parents looking to replace traditional school without having the burden of doing all the work of homeschool. Students receive instruction from a certified teacher in a classroom setting.

Who
We Are

Academy of Scholars Performing Arts School is a modern take on the one-room schoolhouse. We are a learning community for students in 1st - 8th grade.  Our students are part of mixed grade classes rather than split into grade levels. 

Full-Day

Upper School:  7th - 8th grade

Lower School: 5th - 6th grade

Part-Day 

1st- 4th grade

 

Classes are facilitated by  certified teachers with several years of experience in public/private and special education.

 

We believe each child is unique, has a unique learning style, and deserves a personalized education to meet their needs.

 

In a rapidly changing world, our hope is to empower our students to become lifelong learners with strong critical thinking skills. 

Our Approach

Academy of Scholars Performing Arts School

is dedicated to providing an education that enables our students to reach their highest level of academic achievement and potential. 

 

Our mission is to provide a well-rounded education that includes S.T.E.M, leadership, and performing arts. We are focused on meaningful learning and are deeply committed to academic excellence.

 Our educational framework is based on the Eclectic Homeschool model which is a highly individualized method that utilizes a variety of teaching styles, resources, and methodologies. 

We believe "It takes a Village" so we work closely with parents/caregivers, and the community to bridge the gap between home and school.

 

Our highly qualified staff provides group and one-on-one direct instruction in a variety of  lessons and hands-on activities to keep students' creativity flowing. Our students learn through projects, not memorization. 

Our Program 

Academy of Scholars Performing Arts School 

combines gamified learning and real world projects in a self paced, flexible environment to offer a true 21st century education. We have three primary categories of instruction.

 

Socratic Dialogue:  An ancient teaching method that gives students practice at objectivism and critical thinking. 

Project Based Learning: Hands on, targeted projects that provide students the opportunity to apply their knowledge, collaborate, and problem solve.

Experiential Learning: Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is narrowly defined as "learning through reflection on doing".

Leadership Academy:    Leadership skills allow children to have control of their lives and a give them the ability to accomplish their goals. Leadership instills confidence, and helps children solve problems creatively and work collaboratively with others.
