American Classical Charter Academy provides an excellent education through an academically rigorous curriculum. Our school day is structured around teacher-led direct instruction where we make the most of every educational minute. At ACCA, we believe in knowledge-centered education where the teacher is the leader of classroom instruction. You will not find cooperative learning centers or student pods in our classrooms or observe project-based, child-directed instruction taking place. Desks face the front of the room, and our students show their respect for teachers by standing when they answer questions or address their teachers. Classroom bookcases are filled with classics and other well-written literature and our classroom space is used to educate, not decorate. The following list provides an overview of what you will and will not see in an ACCA classroom.
