Centner Academy’s dedication to our students’ academic and social emotional learning experiences are the driving force of our curriculum. Our preschool curriculum has been thoughtfully designed to tap into rich and thematic cross-curricular experiences from academics, to play, to the arts, and relationships. Together they fundamentally shape our young learners’s growth and development as well as encourage a love of learning. We prepare our young students to be excited, deep thinkers with a big heart.
Our preschoolers participate in Science Fair, Earth Day Events, History & Literature Projects, Math World Wide Competitions, Entrepreneurship, and learn the Engineering Design Process to help them learn in the real world, not just in classrooms.
Centner Academy is leverages conscious discipline and focuses on mindfulness throughout the school day. All of our classrooms have Zen Zones for meditation and our preschoolers actively participate in reflective journaling to help them develop a growth mindset.
We believe in meeting children where they are and helping them grow from there. This is put into practice through our focus on ability grouping and on content acceleration for students who are ready to take the next steps in their learning.
Our faculty help students connect their learning across subjects by using art history immersion, guided reading, and real world mathematics. Our dual language immersion program also integrates cultural education to help our students develop empathy for people across the world.
