Carrie and John, certified and experienced life-long educators, created The Andersen Academy as a solution to the problem facing their own daughter, the lack of a safe, small, personalized learning space for middle school.

Our small learning pods are designed to help students build friendships in a safe space, foster critical thinking skills, and nurture their desire to learn at a pace that reflects their individual needs and interests. Rather than trying to replicate the traditional classroom setting, our medium is an innovative way to explore technological advances while simultaneously ensuring our students are socially engaged with peers and experienced educators.

Social-Emotional Learning

Every day will begin with a small group meeting that helps students get centered, develop emotional expression, and appropriate communication skills. Mornings will include an opportunity for students to explore the world around us, creating globally-minded students who will be prepared for the vast academic challenges present in secondary education (think AICE, AP Programs, College).

Critical Reading/Thinking Skills

Students will be presented with a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts that increase their comprehension. Students will be prompted to think critically about what they read, asking questions that will help them to identify their own beliefs and learn to share their opinions with each other (think debate, the Socratic Method, etc).

Mastery Learning

Students will be able to choose different methods of evaluation that focus on their own skill set. Some will gravitate towards traditional exams, while others will lean towards projects or oral/discussion-based evaluations. Education should not rely on the “one size fits all” approach seen in traditional schools; say GOOD-BYE to endless standardized tests!
