SEA Academy utilizes a multi-age classroom approach. This structure allows teachers to deeply know their students’ learning styles and is conducive to active student involvement in teaching and learning opportunities. Within a multi-age setting, opportunities for enrichment and reinforcement of learning are provided. Younger children learn from the older children and older children have an opportunity to take on a leadership role and share their knowledge.
Research supports that students in multi-age classrooms demonstrate increased self esteem, more cooperative behavior, increased pro-social behavior (caring, tolerant, patient), an enhanced sense of personal responsibility and self-discipline.
Currently, SEAA offers 4 classrooms based on students strengths and needs.
