A student-directed writers workshop, which emphasizes pre-writing, organizing, drafting, editing and revising, allows for a variety of writing opportunities.

As students are introduced to greater levels of abstract thinking, they are taught to apply these tools to more complex forms of problems and problem solving.Image of Private College Preparatory School in Chicago

Science:

To create well-rounded students with strong critical thinking and problem solving skills, the scientific process is used as a way to understand scientific content.

In the curriculum a special emphasis is placed on oral proficiency.

Arts:
In the studio art class, students explore art elements, principles and techniques in different media. Students create drawings, paintings, prints and collages. The faculty guides students to assess work through the use of rubrics. In addition, they use a problem-solving approach to art education, encouraging students to learn about art by creating art.

In music classes, students participate in band or chorus and are introduced to relevant literature. Their course of study culminates in musical presentations during the year. In dance, the curriculum is designed to further improve students’ ability to demonstrate their conceptual understanding of space, time and dynamics by teaching the necessary compositional components used in creating dances.

Physical Education:
In physical education classes, students meet as a grade and are then divided into four or five groups. Depending on the unit, they may be divided by gender (e.g. swimming is a single-sex unit). All students participate in sex education, nutrition and cardiovascular health in addition to sport and fitness units. Students receive an introduction to skills used in a variety of sports and activities and develop hand-eye coordination, tracking and striking. Higher grade students build upon those skills in more advanced games and activities. Finally, students focus on advanced skills, positioning and game strategies, and are given the opportunity to choose their own units in the spring
