Co-Educational Day School Programs from Grades 5-12: 

NYA's English courses prepare students to write effectively in a range of modes, from the narrative essay to the analytical essay. Teachers respond to their students' writing with extensive commentary and suggestions. Middle School courses emphasize the fundamentals of good writing, including grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure, and paragraphing skills. In addition, they offer students a variety of writing opportunities, including expository essays and the research paper.

In the ninth grade, students begin to think and write with greater independence, and there is a greater emphasis on analytical work. In the upper grades, students write longer essays on increasingly complex subjects; they may, for example, analyze the main components of an argument, synthesize different points of view, or imitate a literary technique. In the junior and senior years, some students may choose to take AP Language and Composition and AP Literature and Composition.

This course of study stresses increased problem-solving strategies (particularlPhoto of Private Middle School & High School in Portland ME areay with word problems) and accurate computational skills. In addition to a thorough review of basic arithmetic operations and concepts, topics include: whole numbers, decimals, fractions, percentages, statistics, positive/negative numbers, place value and ratios.

Early American History:
The colonization and development of North America, with a strong emphasis on Maine and New England, will be examined through the Constitutional Convention. At this juncture, the focus will shift to a study of how each level and branch of government works and how it impacts our daily lives. Local history and local government will be covered by hands-on research and role-playing. Local and state issues will be examined through projects, position papers and essay exams. The Internet will be used for gathering political information.

This course touches on some of the major divisions in science including biology, chemistry and physics. During the year students will learn about the topics each division covers and how they are all related. An emphasis will be on learning the skills of science; the metric system, scientific method, lab skills, and report writing. Inquiry-based and hands-on activities will help to reinforce concepts learned in class. A variety of evaluations are used to assess student learning including projects and traditional tests. There are also interdisciplinary connections made with geography and other subjects.
