PK3 & PK4-KINDERGARTEN: ENROLLMENT OPEN FOR 2021-2022

Our Early Years program has been designed to encompass a combination of what is emotional and spiritual, and what is intellectual and academic. Thus, attaining the maximum potential in the integral education of our children. Our philosophy allows us to tap into the innate curiosity of our students who, in turn, lead us to find the most creative tools to obtain great academic results. The Early Years program provides pre-school aged children the academic background to enter Kindergarten confidently. Kindergarten students mentor our Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 students and help them foster relationships among the greater student body. From early on our hope is for all students to feel safe and recognized within our community and that their academic and moral values are shared.

 

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 students to a world of knowledge and exploration. The curriculum includes a variety of activities to engage visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic learners. Teachers endeavor to create a classroom environment, which awakens the interest of each student, in order to build fundamental skills without sacrificing creativity or the joy of learning. Shelton Academy provides a rich curriculum which meets and exceeds Florida standards. These plans introduce the students to a wider scope of learning opportunities. At the Elementary level, our program encourages responsibility and promotes academic excellence and scholastic achievement within a nurturing environment. We recognize student individuality and acknowledge each child’s 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 offers increased 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 students who strive for academic excellence. Integral to this vision is an environment that challenges students beyond academic achievement and provides for them with necessary tools, experiences, and role models to become men and women of faith who strive to grow in virtue and character. Upper Academy students are challenged to pursue their studies with professional excellence. Catholic religious studies classes are offered at each grade level.  We also offer a wide variety of electives in the middle school such as: Chess, Model United Nations, Orchestra, Art for Life, and Historical Biography as well as rich extracurricular activities to further help students develop as a whole – from an intellectual, moral, spiritual, social, and human standpoint. High School students may choose from an array of electives including Leadership I & II, Human & Artificial Intelligence, Storytelling, Cinema and Study Block. Additional opportunities for enrichment and personal development include Florida Virtual School courses, Model United Nations, and the Student Government Association. Sixth and seventh graders travel to Tampa Bay for an action-packed adventure exploring Florida marine life, while eighth graders travel to Washington, D.C. These are some of the opportunities offered to instill a spirit of adventure and optimism, as well as to help students grow in their spirit of service and commitment. All Upper Academy courses utilize Chromebook and SMART Boards to fully benefit from online resources and supplemental materials provided for the classroom setting.

High School

The Shelton High School curriculum is designed to provide students with a comprehensive education to help students develop their talents. We aim to instill knowledge, broaden perspectives, and open up horizons while developing a life of virtue in a faith-based setting.  The High School program at Shelton Academy promotes excellence while preparing our graduates for a competitive college admission process and a subsequent life of professional work. Shelton Academy students are encouraged 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. We are committed to offering Advanced Placement courses in addition to the honors level and elective classes we already provide as 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.
