Aspen Academy’s curriculum reflects a clear commitment to the essential building blocks of education in language, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, physical education, and character and leadership. From Pre-Kindergarten through the eighth grade, we provide exceptional training in fundamental skills and analytical thinking, while encouraging independence of mind, intellectual curiosity, and creative growth.
How do we teach? Here are a few examples:
- Junior Kindergartners learn about the pilgrims trip on the Mayflower while exploring their own heritage.
- Fourth-graders study the exploration of Lewis and Clark while working on a play about American explorers.
- Fifth graders build and launch rockets while learning about the space program.
This is the kind of integrated and contextual learning that takes place at Aspen Academy.
Aspen Academy faculty respect their students for who they are and challenge them to explore who they’ll become, inspiring them to make a positive difference in our world.
Whoever you are, whatever you love, wherever you want to go, expect the unexpected. Learning at Aspen Academy crosses disciplines and goes well beyond the classroom experience.
