In addition to our robust core curriculum, ancillary programming adds further depth to the overall school experience.
Before & After School Care
Our Before and After-School programs provide a balance of structured and unstructured activities that center cooperative and collaborative play in a relaxed, safe and nurturing setting.
After School Clubs
After-School clubs provide an avenue for our older students to cultivate current interests or develop new passions through exploration. Clubs provide a dedicated time and space for like minded students to engage in shared goals and activities under the guidance of adult mentors.
The Wellness curriculum introduces our Extended Day and Junior Level students to the values reflected in our school’s broader mission of promoting independence and respecting self, others and the environment.
As children grow, the offerings available in the classroom are no longer enough to satisfy their needs. “Going out” intensifies instruction as children witness and experience first-hand what is out in their community.
We consider media literacy to be the 21st century extension of the Practical Life curriculum that is the cornerstone of an EAC education. To prepare children for their world requires an education that gives them the tools to decode and encode messages of all kinds.
Shortly after Memorial Day, during the last two full weeks of school, children and adults come together to pursue mutual interests in groupings not predicated by age or class placement. It is our way to channel the end of school energy into a productive and fun alternative for all.
Big Buddies & Leadership
Leadership experiences are plentiful at EAC, in large part because of our multi-age classrooms and because as builders and shapers of community we want all of our students, from youngest to oldest, to have the opportunity to engage with each other in meaningful ways.
During school breaks EACMSI runs day camps for enrolled students in our Primary, Extended Day and Junior Levels.
Schedule a Classroom Observation
The best way to get a sense of who we are and how we do things is to observe a classroom in action.
Learn by Doing
There is nothing passive going on at EAC! Whether digging for fossils, planting seeds, conducting experiments, or creating presentations, EAC students are active participants in the construction of knowledge.
We teach children to advocate for themselves and others, to speak the truth from their hearts and to value the perspectives of others. We center community and relationships above all else and nurture both with care and vigilance.
