STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math)

CAACS STEM program offers a different approach to learning and teaching. Through activity-, project-, and problem-based curriculum, CAACS gives scholars in kindergarten through fifth grade a chance to apply what they know, identify problems, find unique solutions, and lead their own learning.

The interactive curriculum that is used for science is the FOSS curriculum. The FOSS curriculum is a totally hands on module that grabs and sustain the interest of our scholars. For teachers, our engaging, rigorous professional development model provides tools to empower scholars and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where content come to life.

Cultural Arts Academy uses Pearson’s Envison Math and Houghton Mifflin’s Math in Focus as the core curricula. These programs, in alignment with the Common Core Standards and International Standards, are focused on provide scholars with a rich learning experience that meets their individual needs. Daily double blocks of mathematics provide scholar the time necessary to not only learn the core elements of the subject, but also develop their critical thinking skills.
