Grades 6 - 8
Middle School at SEA Academy is all about connections and collaboration. Students are encouraged to explore their interests within the core subject areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Students may come to us with a variety of needs, ranging from low confidence, anxiety, needing friends, or social skills deficits. We support them with social skills lessons while we guide and encourage them to participate in classroom activities that require more initiation and collaborative problem solving. The learning process is enriched through games and projects, research, and shared inquiry discussion as well as individual sessions with a teacher. Through these activities, the students connect with each other and learn to compromise, negotiate, explain, evaluate, execute, and problem solve. Teaching materials we utilize include:
- Great Books Roundtable
- Teaching Writing: Structure and Style
- Spectrum Math
- Discovery Education
Our Middle School students enjoy many activities beyond the classroom which enrich their learning. Some of the available programs include social groups, Partners & Trios, Nutrition Lab, Physical Education, gardening and composting, Protect the Planet, Sprouts, music and art, holiday chorus, STEM and Math labs, film festival and more.
