At StudentFirst Academy we believe every child wants to learn; has the right to a globally competitive, high quality education; and desires to develop the social skills conducive to proactive citizenship. StudentFirst Academy offers smaller classes to tailor activities to the individual student, extended hours for working parents, a cultural arts program, as well as a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum. Community involvement is stressed during instruction and integrated with field experiences. The school philosophy reflects an inherent belief in educating not only the individual, but also the collective, and we each have a responsibility to its fruition. We use the Paideia program and the Lindamood Bell Learning Process to guide the teaching methodology in Lower, Middle, and Upper School. StudentFirst Academy provides an educational and nurturing environment that fosters career learners and is a safe haven for all students. We teach students to be independent thinkers and doers.
