At ARCHES Academy, it doesn't matter where students begin with us academically. We heartily meet our kiddos where they are academically, socially, and emotionally -- and help get them where they are able to be. Our small, close-knit public school thrives due to our supportive, individualized and fun learning environment.
Our commitment is to help each learner achieve mastery of the standards by use of authentic learning experiences, coaching and mentoring, freedom of choice, and personal responsibility. We believe that our methods produce outstanding individuals who not only have acquired exceptional literacy in the arts and sciences, but mastery over self and true leadership ability.
At ARCHES Academy we treat every student as the individual they are. Beginning with enrollment, we survey each kiddo and their parents to better understand their unique attributes and preferences. We talk about learning style, personality and more. We assess every child so we can tailor a unique learning plan and focus on needs. This enables us to curate a personalized day-to-day class schedule. No two humans are the same, and their learning shouldn't be either!
Our curriculum is strong and standards-based and provides the foundation of learning that allows our students not only to acquire new knowledge and skills -- but to also apply them to new situations and tasks.
We further support every ARCHES student with our self-paced learning culture, help in goal-setting, joyfully celebrating milestones and mastery and aligning strong student-mentor relationships.
At ARCHES Academy, our teachers and staff know every kiddo and deeply care about their engagement. Our team collaborates, cooperates, ideates and shares best practices constantly so we can best serve our students. Our faculty and staff honor student choices, while boosting mastery of standards-based education.
Our project-based activities shine a light on teamwork, leadership development and collaboration, too. Wearing uniforms is another way we identify as a team at ARCHES Academy.
The old way of grouping students together just because they are all the same age has resulted in far too many students that are either struggling to keep with their peers and giving up on themselves or bored because they have already mastered the material and are now causing trouble to entertain themselves. Our focus is on the needs of individual students. We show this focus by grouping students according to their demonstrated ability in each content area.
We believe self-reflection isn’t selfish and we equip our students with the ability to explore their world -- without feeling self-conscious or reserved. School is fun at ARCHES Academy and learning is, too!
Our mascot is the Warrior. Our students tackle this Warrior pride by learning positive character traits and integrating a mistakes-are-ok attitude. We explore traits like honor, strength, courage, and discipline together.
At ARCHES Academy, we cultivate growth mindsets and critical thinking skills, alongside personal responsibility. We ensure each student learns by doing, shares responsibilities and tasks, and recognizes a meaningful role in group dynamics.
We believe every child is brilliant. Our K-8 public school celebrates the unique way each kiddo learns and thrives, all in our flexible and safe school environment. By the time kiddos enter the world of formal education, they have already accumulated vast amounts of knowledge and skills, and have developed a keen sense for how they prefer to learn. Because we understand and honor this individuality at ARCHES and every child’s natural proclivity for learning, we focus on learners, pacing and each student’s unique needs.
Our commitment is to help each K-8 learner achieve mastery of the standards by use of authentic learning experiences, coaching and mentoring, freedom of choice, and personal responsibility. At ARCHES Academy, our educational approach produces outstanding individuals who not only have acquired exceptional literacy in the arts and sciences, but mastery over self and true leadership ability.
