Middle School:

Because students learn at different speeds, Cambrian Academy provides a special program for middle school high achievers.Students who are receiving high grades in middle school, and who have a track record of 90th percentile scores on standardized tests, may qualify for special admission. These students may complete the basic middle school requirements at an accelerated pace--and begin high school courses as soon as they are ready.

It's highly probable that there are some significant gaps in your child's English skills. American schools have been failing students in this area for a long time. Communication is the cornerstone not only of good education, but also a major factor in success as an adult.

Our students will read and write like they have never done it before. They will learn to both comprehend and communicate both concrete and abstract concepts. They will be expected to develop a vocabulary significantly greater than the average native English speaker. They will be prepared to study more sophisticated subjects with confidence.

Our history teachers are intimately familiar with the ultimate outcome we want our students to achieve. Students come to middle school with a basic introduction to US History (4th grade) and Geography and World History (2nd-5th grades). Our US and World History survey classes are designed to prepare the students to take AP Geography, AP World History, and AP US History.

Our integrated science curriculum covers introductions to biology, physics, and Earth science. In these courses, middle school students are quite capable of exploring high school level topics. This, combined with the appropriate level of math mastery, will prepare students for AP science courses.

A good student can memorize his or her way through elementary school math. Our teachers will find out if your child truly understands the concepts behind the math. Most of the basic concepts are simply recyPhoto of College Preparatory School in the San Francisco Bay Areacled at higher and higher levels and should be solid before stepping into abstract math.
