Units of Study
Learning in each subject area is broken into 4 or 5 units of study per year. Each unit is driven by essential questions that entice students to explore beyond the specific details of the unit or lesson being taught. Questions such as, “How does learning about other cultures teach me about myself?”, engage our students to think, consider, and evaluate the world around them in light of their new understandings and skills.
At Carmel Academy, we are sensitive to the fact that students learn best through different modalities and at different paces. We honor students’ diverse learning needs and processes. By providing a range of instructional methods that ensure that all students learn the necessary skills and concepts, each child develops a growing awareness of who they are as learners and how they learn best.
