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

 

The curriculum for our elementary students provides ample opportunities for exploration in each area of study and at each grade level, necessary to build fundamental skills without sacrificing creativity or the joy of learning.

At this level, our program promotes academic excellence and scholastic achievement within a nurturing environment that encourages responsibility. We recognize the individuality of students and acknowledge that their growth depends on experiences that build 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. Our students have the ability to be challenged and explore new knowledge as they choose from electives such as Italian, swimming, flag football, yearbook, and musical theater. This curriculum encourages a holistic education that develops confident and independent critical thinkers. STEM curriculum is incorporated into the science courses.

In addition, teachers meet individual learning levels in and outside the classroom, incorporating programs such as Florida Virtual School to provide enrichment. Pupils in these grades may participate in 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. for four days of museums, monuments, and memorials, with the opportunity to earn high school credit.

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

Students graduating from Shelton Academy have been accepted to various distinguished high schools in the city of Miami. Because of their outstanding achievements, some have been tapped for advanced placement classes or received full academic scholarships. Secondary schools where our students continue to excel include:

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

Sandra Santoro, Parent

High School

The high school academic curriculum is designed to help students collect, analyze and synthesize data; state and support arguments; and work effectively with groups of people. Knowing that every person learns differently, Shelton Academy works to provide a unique learning environment for each student. Small classes enable teachers to know students as individual learners and help each one develop in a way that is personally beneficial and fitting.

From our rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum, each student gains the ability to think critically, creatively and individually. Students are encouraged to pursue their interests at the most challenging levels. Advanced courses are offered in all subject areas, and electives and independent studies are open as additional alternatives for pursuing individual interests. A number of global and off-campus programs are available to extend a student’s educational experience beyond the campus gates.
