We’re on summer break until after Labor Day, but you can contact us to set up a summer conversation about enrollment.
This week we explored the philosophy of electrons and how electrons influence trends in the periodic table. Plus the mysterious death of Gilbert Lewis and helium’s tendency to be a little snooty.
We travel back in time to the big bang to figure out how the elements we know and love on Earth came into existence, try to separate a mixture in the lab, and explore the origins of the periodic table.
This week kicked off our summer chemistry class, and we got things off on the right magical science foot by transforming copper into silver. (Or did we? More on that as our understanding of the situation develops.)
We’re a different kind of school for one-of-a-kind students.
At the Academy, we believe learning should be:
Your education at the Academy is as unique as you are.
We’ll work with you to make the stuff you care about outside the classroom part of your learning life.
We encourage you to take the reins of your education by setting your own academic goals each semester.
Our curriculum is built around great books, primary sources, big questions, and essential academic skills.
What you should bring:
Composition book or notebook
Your favorite thing to write with (plus a back-up)
Calculator (if you want)
