Everything we do at LFA is intentional and designed to promote independent and life long learners. That means academic progress in core subjects like Math and Language Arts, but also includes higher cognitive skills and important non-cognitive skills. Our goal is to instill confidence within our space that empowers each world changer to learn without boundaries.
In a blended setting, each child will have their own phonics or grammar book and progress at their own rate. Each child will have their own math book and work along at their own level. Each child will practice reading every day, receiving encouragement from their coaches and peers, all of whom are at different levels. Science, Geography, History, Art, Music, Spanish and almost anything else that's being taught can be done as a group. The principal is simple: We will teach to the oldest and let the learning trickle down.
