Overview

Science Academy of Chicago says

The ScienceAcademyof Chicago is a place where students trust themselves enough to take risks in a safe and supportive environment. We set goals for our students on an individual basis. Learning activities include both cooperative learning (groups) and individual projects. Every child makes a special contribution here, and our small classes allow each child to be seen as a unique, whole person, with his or her own learning style and pattern of growth. Our students learn to pay attention, concentrate on tasks, and use knowledge meaningfully. SAC offers small class sizes and a 1:20 teacher-student ratio enables us to provide the kind of attention and support that we believe to be vital for learning in the classroom. This size aids in creating a family-like atmosphere in which teacher, student and parent can come together with a consistency and commitment that is beneficial to the child's educational and personal development. Parents also have the advantage of monitoring the progress of their child via the internet. On this database parents' have access to their child's records, daily homework assignments, grades, teacher's e-mails.We know that beyond a great school, families also need to consider cost. This is why at SAC we offer affordable tuition that includes so much. In an effort to support working families and busy lives we offer both before and after school care. In addition, students also engage in after school activities, advanced study teams, field trips, and science fairs.In the primary grades (Pre K-3-2) students have a homeroom teacher who works hard to instill the love of learning in their students. These teachers work with diligence, skill and creativeness in order to provide the most nurturing and mentally stimulating environments possible. Beginning in the third grade students' progress into a new area of development in which more responsibilities are required. Students change teachers/classrooms throughout the day. These teachers' posses a mastery of their subjects and use innovative methods and tools in order to cultivate and inspire the minds of our students.In addition to our distinctive curriculum we also offer advanced study teams which engage selected student in a deeper exploration of mathematics and science. Such students participate in competitions on the state, national and international levels. Beyond the awards and recognition gained from competing, these events also generate an excitement and passion towards the pursuit of wisdom. Guided and supported by faculty members and steeped in the knowledge of their subjects.
