Curriculum

Grattan Academy’s goal is to empower students with the academic knowledge and skills for success in education, work, and citizenship. Our educational program promotes students through achievement and focuses on the rapid intellectual development of each child. Our accelerated program respects the differences in each child and their method of learning, yet demands that students strive to reach their full academic potential.

  • Grattan's curriculum is based on the Michigan Core Curriculum Standards and is designed to maximize each child’s potential.

  • Grattan offers all students the use of computers in every classroom and an internet-ready media center equipped with the most advanced instructional technology available.

  • Grattan Academy recognizes every student’s individual needs and potential. Small class sizes give students the chance to work at their own pace, and teachers an opportunity to focus on students’ special needs.

  • Grattan Academy's high school curriculum presents a demanding pre-university course of study designed for highly motivated secondary school students. In this program, we emphasize critical thinking, intercultural understanding, and exposure to a variety of points of view.

  • Grattan emphasizes active citizenship and global perspectives within each area of the curriculum.

  • Students are able to explore some subjects in depth and others more broadly, so that a science-oriented student is challenged to learn a foreign language and the natural linguist becomes familiar with laboratory procedures.

  • Grattan Academy works in partnership with students and parents to ensure that students have ample opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned.

  • In addition to extensive opportunities in the classroom, our expanded high school curriculum, under the direct supervision of highly qualified teachers, also includes.

· On-line classes
