Pre K & Kindergarten
We have created an environment where students are encouraged to dream and use their imagination. The Science Academy provides its youngest students with an outstanding educational opportunity. Our extremely dedicated staff provides an exceptional foundation for each student. The environment nurtures their social and emotional needs while paving the road to academic success.
Our preschool-kindergarten senior classes are full time, five days a week from 8:10am-3:00pm. Each child at the Science Academy receives instruction in language arts, math, science, social studies, art, music, physical education, computers and Spanish.
Our preschool students are curious and enthusiastic. They are busy identifying their alphabet as well as the sounds, number recognition, math, shapes, and colors.
The students are learning sharing, caring, responsibility and other important character traits to create a wellrounded individual. These are just a few things our three year olds are accomplishing so that they are ready to begin their kindergarten curricula in our juniors’ class.
Our kindergarten juniors are using a kindergarten curriculum and are ready for the challenges it holds. The staff works extremely hard to create a solid foundation for each childs’ academic success. The Science Academy staff broadens each student’s knowledge by differentiating, enriching, accelerating, problem solving, and creative thinking.
The Science Academy kindergarten seniors are traditional kindergarten students confidently working on first grade curricula. Schedules are packed with fun filled activities which challenge them each day with hands on activities in mathematics, reading, writing, science, social studies, computers, and art. Science Academy of Chicago students also receive music, art, Spanish, computers, and physical education taught by specialists in those fields.
The first and second grade program balances a rigorous yet accelerated academic curriculum with a loving and compassionate staff. Everyone at the Science Academy is dedicated to helping the students maintain their love of learning and self-confidence.
