Inspiring inquiring young minds
At California STEAM, we ignite inquisitive through our inquiry focused curriculum. Throughout our K-5 courses, you will find certain recurring themes that build on the previous grades’ teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of knowledge. Our personalized approach means your child can go as fast or slow as they need to. With a wide variety of extension and support materials to enrich your student’s experience, there is no limit to what your student can achieve.
The California STEAM Academy curriculum was created by a team of experts, using tried-and-true educational approaches for instruction. Our core subjects provide a rich, rigor filled educational experience for all students. Lessons integrate information from all disciplines to enrich and connect the student learning experience. Field trips and excursions reinforce what’s learned in the classroom with practical examples. The lesson plans for each subject are integrated, so your child may be reading literature from the same time period as the art or history lesson she is studying. What begins as a story about a Pharaoh in ancient Egypt, may lead to an examination of modern arts and architecture.
Bringing Learning to Life
Classes include a rich array of on- and offline teaching tools, which include animation, award-winning printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, CD’s and videos, and sciences materials for hands-on experiments. Wet labs are conducted periodically throughout the school year at targeted locations to ensure students can participate regularly. Lessons are followed by checkpoints for understanding so you can be sure that students have achieved mastery of the lesson before moving on. Built-in planning, progress, and attainment metrics make it easy to ensure that students are on track.
