Sophistication & Humor
Building upon the foundational skills and practices of their early elementary years, students are now “reading to learn,” rapidly growing their vocabularies, and making meaning of their ever-expanding world of discovery. They inquire, classify, generalize, and analyze while communicating with increasing depth, sophistication, and humor. Continuing their learning through the Bridges in Mathematics curriculum, students deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts and numeric relationships. Whether by using models to demonstrate their mathematical thinking, or through writing for greater purpose, students in grades three through five develop critical thinking skills and begin to formulate a world view that is particularly theirs. In deliberate preparation for Middle School, intermediate students learn to self-advocate, demonstrate leadership, and take increasing responsibility for their learning.
At Villa Academy, we are growing confident young minds with strong moral character who are prepared to make a difference. Our inquiry-based approach to education balances theory with experience, pairing student-centered academic excellence and whole child wellness with our values of growth, justice, and student agency.
