Educational Program

Youngstown Academy of Excellence implements a thematic, interactive program incorporating multiple learning styles. We are now enrolling students, grades K to 8th, for the 2010-11 school year. For more information on enrollment, call (330) 746-3965.

The core curriculum includes the nation’s top-rated Open
Court Reading, SRA Real Math, and Harcourt Brace
Science.

Students receive the rigor of college preparatory
coursework coupled with the “hands-on” approach
of Paragon which enables them to practically apply
what they learn in class. The morning is dedicated
to building solid skills in the core subject areas of
reading, writing, math and science. The afternoon
features alternating specials of foreign language,
music, physical education, and a daily 90-minute
block of Mosaica’s proprietary Paragon curriculum.
The program features include individualized
learning plans for all students; innovative use of
technology and foreign language for students at all
grade levels.

Structure and Safety

Providing structure and an emotionally and
physically safe learning environment is a top
priority. We are committed to providing students
with a sense of belonging and a feeling of
signicance so they feel safe to learn, grow, and
thrive. A strong code of conduct, uniform dress
code, and emphasis on parent involvement
contribute to a school culture that fosters
excellence.

Parental Involvement

Because every child needs stability, continuity and a
champion who believes in his or her human
potential, parents are required to be actively
engaged in their children’s education. Teachers
conduct regular goal setting conferences with
individual children and their parents so that all
cooperate to ensure the student’s success.

Propelled by Paragon

The content-rich Paragon Curriculum is
interdisciplinary, engaging, discovery-based,
student centered, and multi-cultural. Paragon’s
hands-on approach addresses students’ multiple
intelligences and individual learning styles,
enhancing their skills of communication,
analysis, and self-expression.

Rather than teach history in bits and pieces in
arbitrary sequence, Paragon’s chronological
approach demonstrates to students how one
idea builds on and evolves into another, and
leads students to understand the evolution of
world cultures.

Students study history across continents and
gain a profound understanding of the manner
in which many ideas develop at the same time
in independent cultures unaware of the other’s
breakthroughs. Students step into the shoes of
great thinkers, use the tools and techniques of
scientists and mathematicians in simulation, and
analyze and evaluate their contributions.

Enrollment

Classroom space is limited, so it is imperative
that parents submit an enrollment application
for their child as early as possible.
