Academics

 

Lower School Academics

Transitional Kindergarten through Fourth Grade is a time for children to expand their love of learning, their ability to get along with others, and their interest in reaching out to the world.  The children are involved in a classroom that is a loving and nurturing environment while engaging in daily activities that help foster their development and growth in the areas of academic, social, emotional, and gross/fine motor skills. Conversations about and explorations of spirituality, religion, and ethics at Alverno Heights Academy are woven naturally into the fabric of school life. They occur in classrooms, among faculty and students in the hallways, and at our weekly prayer service with Deacon Manuel Valencia and monthly student-led masses.Click here to learn more

 

Middle School Academics

In Fifth through Eighth Grade, our faculty and staff take great pride in the relationships that are fostered with our middle school students.  Students are introduced to approaches in learning to help tackle complex and sensitive issues that middle school students may be experiencing during this period of adolescence. The academic rigor and breadth of the middle school curriculum allows our students to navigate towards the next stage of their education as confident, happy and eager to excel to the next level of their education. Students are encouraged to promote action and service to the local and global community, with the regular use of collaborative project-based learning which nurtures positive communication and problem-solving skills to equip our middle schoolers to transition smoothly onward. The 7th and 8th grade exciting annual excursion week promotes international-mindedness as well as develops life-long learners of adventure and thinking beyond the classroom walls. Conversations about and explorations of spirituality, religion, and ethics at Alverno Heights Academy are woven naturally into the fabric of school life. Click here to learn more
