Saint Albans strives for academic rigour. We expect students to master the basics, and we believe that hard work is essential to achieving a well-rounded education. At the same time, we understand that students need to be fully engaged in the learning process. Consequently, we encourage students to explore and discover at every stage of their educational journey.
With its emphasis on active learning, Saint Albans provides each child with the skills to succeed and the courage to take intellectual risks in what we hope will be a lifelong pursuit of learning.
Saint Albans uses the Core Knowledge curriculum in all its classes. Core Knowledge is a back-to-basics approach to education that attempts to develop cultural and academic literacy. In each grade students will be exposed to a broad range of historical, scientific, and cultural topics that will build on one another to prepare them for later educational success. This wide array of subject matter will not only develop cultural literacy but also will build the strong vocabulary necessary for true reading comprehension.
