Morning Glory Academy, Keller:
Morning Glory Academy is a private school located in Keller, Tarrant County (part of the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex) in Texas that provides part-time, small-group learning environment for children ages 5 - 18 ("K to 12th grade") in support of the students' home-centered education. Our programs are aimed at families who do not want full-time public or private school, but do not want to 'go it alone' as homeschoolers. Our classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 3.10 pm.
Three core subjects are offered each week: World History, Literature/ Language Arts, and General Science. Upper School also includes Math.
Language Arts in the Lower School includes copywork, grammar, and writing activities. In the Upper School, the students will read and discuss the literature selections, and write regularly to improve their ability to express their observations and opinions in writing.
Math in the Lower School is not a full subject, but will be touched upon through critical thinking games and in some science labs. Math in the Upper School consists of 6th grade, Pre-Algebra, and Algebra 1 for Logic 1, Logic 2, and Rhetoric 1 levels, respectively.
We teach World History chronologically over a four-year cycle. Our focus for the 2008-2009 was The Ancients, 5000BC – 500AD. Our World History for the 2009-2010 is the Middle Ages, 500AD – 1600AD. World Geography is integrated into History. History is vertically aligned across all levels at MGA, allowing for school-wide activities around a particular time period or event.
History & Literature:
In the Upper School, History and Literature are taught as an integrated Humanities course. History is best understood through excellent literature: biographies, primary sources, and historical fiction that illuminates the time period.
