At Columbus Academy, our curriculum and culture cultivate a love of learning. Our Positive Education model, incorporated into every facet of our academic (and extracurricular) program, recognizes wellness as the centerpiece of students’ lives – physically, emotionally and intellectually.
Our community brings together students and families in our Early Childhood Program, which includes our three-year-old Explorers, PreK, and Kindergarten students; our Lower School that includes Grades 1–5; Middle School from Grades 6–8; and our Upper School, Grades 9–12.
The Positive Education model aims to help students build positive emotions, be more effective learners, stay self-aware of the way their minds and emotions work and consciously lead healthier lives. Best of all, it instills in students a mindset they take with them everywhere – no matter where the “classroom” happens to be.
Teachers engage students in learning inside and outside of the classroom – from formative preschool activities to the first stirrings of academic mastery in middle school to traditional college preparatory disciplines.
