Science and Arts Academy
1825 Miner St, Des Plaines, IL 60016
The academy's accelerated liberal arts curriculum emphasizes creative and critical thinking, inquiry and discovery strategies, problem solving and rapid pacing. In grades 1-4, Science & Arts organizes educational experiences according to students' individual profiles and areas of strength; ability groupings are utilized in math and language arts. Fifth grade serves as a transitional period to increased academic independence. The departmentalized middle school program (grades 6-8) features an adaptable curriculum that offers course work at the high school level as needed. Classical study of Latin, philosophy and logic supplements work in the traditional academic disciplines at this level.
