You may be thinking that because we opened our doors for the first day of school in July that it’s too late to enroll your child at ARCHES Academy, but we want to assure you that now is still a great time to become a part of our school community. You may still be researching schools, new to the area, or maybe the pandemic and subsequent restrictions have made you re-think your options for the school year. Whatever your need for a new school for your child, there are plenty of reasons ARCHES is still a great option.
Our multi-age classrooms and personalized curriculum make it easy to jump in just where you are. When you enroll your child at ARCHES Academy, our staff will assess your student’s needs, talents, interests, and learning styles, so we can place them in the appropriate classes. As your student progresses, regular, authentic assessments take place, allowing us to move students forward as soon as they are able, at their own pace.We believe this method is not only what is best for children, but that it keeps students challenged in the best of ways.
Our approach to education focuses on the humanities and sciences, and how to think rather than what to think. And because we know that learning is a choice, and one we cannot make for our students, we create a flexible environment and culture that supports student responsibility and decision making in regards to their own education and future. Your child will be taught that their choices matter and how to make good choices that will help them get what they want.
ARCHES is proud of our intentionally chosen curriculum, opportunities to weave art and music into our daily lessons, and emphasis on character and leadership development. We also teach real-world leadership skills such as listening, presentation/public speaking, time management, and goal setting, and we focus on activities that develop independence in your child. We are holistic in that we endeavor to teach the whole child: heart, mind, body, and spirit.
When you join our school, you become part of a warm, open community that supports all learners and welcomes families to be an integral part of our day-to-day. We lean on parents as our partners at ARCHES and enjoy the connections and strength that parents bring to our community.
Our small school building and class sizes enable a close knit feel, ensuring that we all know each other by name and can help lift one another up when needed. And our ARCHES uniforms help us all feel connected and show our school spirit. Our assemblies bring us together to celebrate accomplishments and growth—it’s wonderful to see the students cheer each other on!
