Curriculum at Groves Academy
The primary goals for students at Groves Academy are to strengthen basic academic skills, to improve self-esteem, and to increase independence, self-reliance, and self-regulation. Both curriculum and instruction for students in grades 1 - 12 are based on an understanding of each student's abilities and are reflected in the development of their Groves Education Plan. Students are grouped into small classes and are actively engaged in learning through multi-sensory instruction.
Our curriculum uses a variety of instructional programs and approaches. We offer remediation to students for reading, writing, and math. We offer accommodations to enable students to maximize their academic and intellectual growth. We teach learning strategies to help students break down complex academic tasks such as comprehension, writing, and problem solving.
Community resources are used to enhance curriculum offerings. Field trips and community service projects are incorporated into the program to augment classroom instruction.
Organization and study skills are incorporated into instruction in all classes. These skills include note taking, test preparation, active reading and cooperative learning, which are all essential for school success.
Groves Academy places a high priority on providing a learning environment that nurtures students' growth in the academic, social, and emotional realms. Making friends and building a sense of community are encouraged and supported in classrooms and in all student activities.
