GOALS AND STANDARDS
Cambridge Academy strives to create a school environment that allows the students to develop a strong sense of self that will serve as the foundation for effective learning. Our goal is to provide a balanced education that places equal emphasis on developing the students’ academic and social abilities.
At Cambridge Academy we will:
Nurture the spiritual life of the child.
Develop a strong work ethic in the children by setting challenging goals for students to achieve, developing intrinsic motivation, and focusing on the quality of work as well as the completion of tasks.
Nurture, love, and respect the children while allowing them to grow and develop at their own pace.
Recognize that children learn in a variety of ways. The curriculum is designed to foster strengths of a wide range of learning styles.
Provide an open atmosphere that is appealing to individuals from all cultures.
Build strong parent-teacher relationships for the education of the children.
Provide an excellent educational option for the greater community.
Cambridge Academy strongly believes that the school environment has a significant impact on learning. We follow the Effective Schools Research as a guide to help create a positive learning environment. The specific elements of an effective school are:
Inside the classroom, the atmosphere is calm and minimal distractions allow students to focus on learning. They are engaged and energized by personal productivity, close interaction with the teacher, and a brisk but comfortable pace. Teachers ensure equal student participation during class, requiring all to remain alert and attentive. Consistent individual assessment provides opportunities for positive reinforcement as well as suggestions designed to enhance skills. Outside of the classroom, students flourish among their peers. Appropriate dress in the mandated school uniform, uplifting language, and demonstration of healthy social habits combine to provide a wholesome atmosphere. Kindness, integrity, wisdom, and an appreciation for education are evident at the Cambridge Academy campus.
Cambridge Academy carefully selects instructors who are well educated in their specific field and who possess the personal dynamics vital to fine teaching. At Cambridge, teachers lead, inspire, assess, enlighten, and challenge their students. Students are able to participate in an array of extra-curricular activities. For over sixty years, the Cambridge Academy curriculum has proven to be a tremendous benefit to its graduates. Students master skills, build a thorough knowledge base, develop critical thinking and problem solving acumen, learn to interact fairly with peers and teachers, and internalize positive habits. While committed to the basic curricular philosophy, Cambridge Academy does incorporate new ideas that enhance the core curriculum goals. Careful evaluation of new techniques sometimes leads to change; at other times evaluation is the catalyst for increased commitment to the present course of instruction. Cambridge Academy is dedicated to meeting the educational needs and aspirations of every student, using the following educational principles as our parameters:
