Elementary Academy

For Grades 3-5

The Elementary Academy is a partnership education program meets on Tuesdays from September - May where students learn from a qualified teacher in a classroom setting while the parents reinforce the learning experience with guided lessons during the week. It is an a la carte, drop-off program. You can choose the full program or specific classes.  Each class is a full academic course. If a child is enrolled in all four classes, the parent will only need to add a spelling course at home, as well as any electives or enrichment.

We are a partnership – we will provide the lesson plans (PLP – Parent Lesson Plans) and once a week instruction. For Math, Critical Thinking, and Writing/Grammar, the parent will continue with the lessons at home during the week. For the Science/History/Literature Block the parent will need to read the material with the child to prepare him for class on Tuesday.

The teachers do not record grades on assignments. The parent will ensure that all the work assigned is being completed correctly and returned to class as needed. The teacher will help the parent in evaluating the student’s progress and mastery. During arranged times outside of class, the teacher will provide extra assistance for parents and students, as needed.

Our program is designed to sufficiently prepare our students to continue their education in HRM Secondary Academy. Enrollment is per academic year. The tuition cost covers the entire year. All teachers hold at least a Bachelor’s Degree in their field and have classroom experience.
