EXPLORE A DAY IN THE LIFE
At The Alice Daring Academy, our students begin with a daily morning meet-up where all grade levels meet for 15 minutes to identify the daily objectives and share a motivational moment. Initially, teachers model the morning meet-ups and eventually the meetings become student-driven.
Students will learn to motivate one another and recognize accomplishments of their peers, strategize for the upcoming day, and communicate a shared vision. This demonstration of unity reinforces the value in everyone and creates the desire to do their best work. We go forward each morning with excitement and clarity of purpose.
The daily class schedule alternates between 45-minute and 90-minute classes with core classes given 3-4 times a week. Fridays are reserved for reteaching challenging topics or providing individual enrichment. Experiential learning, through hands-on activities, includes internships, mentorship programs, home economics and mathematical integration with origami. The Alice Daring Academy believes that to prepare our students to be 21st-century learners, experiential learning is necessary to bolster critical thinking skills.
