PK3 & PK4-KINDERGARTEN: ENROLLMENT OPEN FOR 2020-21

Our unique Early Years program has been designed to encompass two key factors, achieving the perfect combination of the emotional and spiritual, as well as the intellectual and academic, thus attaining the maximum potential in the integral education of our children.

Our philosophy invites us to use the innate curiosity of our students, and it is they who lead us to find the most creative tools to obtain great academic results.

The Early Years program is one created to prepare our preschool-age children to enter Kindergarten with a competitive academic level in order to make the leap into elementary school in a confident manner.

Kindergarten students become mentors for our Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4 ones, and it is here that a link is formed in which—from the time they are small—they grow up in a trustworthy family environment, based on solid academic and moral values.

We are a small school within a BIG SCHOOL.
We invite you to experience the difference.

“The humanism and professionalism of the staff, the values that are taught and lived, the dynamism in their classes and dedication to the students, make learning something attractive and natural… It is a school that gives our children an integral education!”

María Fernanda Montenegro de López, Parent

VIRTUAL TOUR EARLY YEAR

1st Grade – 5th Grade

 

Our Lower Academy introduces the students to a world of knowledge and exploration. Our teachers invite each one to participate in the learning process.  The curriculum includes a variety of class activities that involve visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinesthetic learners.  Teachers will work towards creating an environment in the classroom driven to awaken the interest of each individual, in order to build the fundamental skills without sacrificing creativity, or the joy of learning. Shelton Academy provides a very rich curriculum which assertively combines the Florida standards with higher levels of expectation.  These plans introduce the students to a wider scope of learning opportunities. At the Elementary level, our program promotes academic excellence and scholastic achievement within a nurturing environment that encourages responsibility. We recognize the individuality of each student and acknowledge that their growth depends on experiences that build spiritual, emotional, social, physical, and intellectual well-being.

“I am very thankful to be a part of such a wonderful school, with the humanity and integrity that is so scarce nowadays. Shelton Academy does such a beautiful job in this community.”

Alicia Tovar, Parent

6th – 8th Grades

Life in the Upper Academy builds skills and knowledge as students progress through the grades, offering increasing independence and flexibility, as well as new opportunities for leadership in the classroom. It is here where the foundation for a successful secondary school career begins.

We offer an honors and advanced program in the Upper Academy, providing an intense intellectual experience for top students who strive for academic excellence and benefit from small classes taught by select faculty. Integral to this vision is an environment that challenges students beyond academic achievement to provide for them the necessary tools, experiences, and role models to become men and women of faith who strive to grow in virtue and character.

Our students are challenged to pursue their studies with professional excellence.  Catholic religion classes are offered at each grade level.  And a wide variety of electives (such as Italian, swimming, flag football, yearbook, and musical theater) and rich extracurricular further help students develop the whole person– from an intellectual, moral, spiritual, social, and human perspective.

Every Upper Academy student is assigned a trained faculty mentor to work with the parents and to serve as an individual advisor.  Additional opportunities for enrichment and personal development include Florida Virtual School courses, Model United Nations, and the Student Government Association.  In the past, the 6th and 7th graders have ventured out to Tampa Bay for an action-packed adventure exploring Florida marine life.  Students in 8th grade travel to Washington, D.C.  These and other opportunities instill in the students a spirit of adventure and optimism towards life’s challenges, helping them grow in their spirit of service and commitment.

All Upper Academy courses utilize Apple iPads and SMART Boards to fully benefit from online resources and supplemental materials provided for the classroom setting.

Our school weekly schedule is as follow :

Early drop-off: 7:30 A.M.

Class start: 8:00 A.M.

Dismissal: 3:15 P.M.

Clubs, sport teams and extra curricular activities: 3:30 P.M.

“This is the perfect school for sensitive teenagers because they respect each child’s personality. They know each and every child by name.”

High School

The Shelton High School curriculum is designed to provide students with a comprehensive education that helps students develop all their talents.  We aim to instill knowledge, broaden perspectives and open up horizons while developing in the students a life of virtue in a faith-based setting.  The high school program at Shelton Academy promotes excellence while preparing our graduates for competitive college admission and a life of professional work.  Shelton students learn to seek and love the truth with a spirit of innovation, and to find purpose and meaning in a life of service and personal responsibility.

Small classes enable teachers to know students as individual learners.  Advanced Placement courses and independent studies provide additional alternatives for pursuing college-level courses, and for exploring individual interests.  The cornerstone of the electives program is an innovative Leadership Skills seminar that challenges students to become reflective thinkers and effective communicators.  Shelton students extend their educational experience beyond the classroom as they prepare to become competent professionals who care for the common good.  They develop their mind while edifying their soul.
