JUNIOR ACADEMY 6-8

Grades 6-8 Curriculum

Our learning community begins each day in a home base setting with a designated teacher/advisor within each grade level.
 
Our core classes include 80 minutes of math and language arts each day. Along with general courses, students have the opportunity to choose between band, choir and music appreciation courses. The DECS band and choir programs includes free group lessons.
 
Additionally, students get to take art, physical education and Spanish.  Some students are also placed in a math, reading or social skills class on an as needed basis.
 
Each day concludes with long home base or electives. Quarterly elective choices include fun classes such as student mentoring, typing, French, News Team, Book blogging, sports, River Watch and more.
