At Emerald Heights Academy, we have split classrooms where students stay in the same homeroom class from 2 grade levels. For example, our 1st and 2nd graders share a classroom and teacher. This gives students a wonderful opportunity to mentor and be mentored by other students every other year. When teachers stay with their students longer, they gain a deeper grasp of each child's strengths and challenges. Having each student in their classroom for 2 years allows our teachers to better support the children academically and emotionally.
Our Classical Liberal Arts Education in the Catholic Tradition focuses on developing the character of each student, in addition to the mind and heart.
