Classes at HEROES Academy

At HEROES Academy, we work exclusively with gifted and talented students. We place students into classes based on tested math and reading ability rather than by age or grade level at school.  Our classes emphasize the development of critical thinking, logic, and problem solving skills. Classes meet for two hours each week for 36 weeks, starting in September and ending in June.  Students receive weekly homework.  Parents are kept up-to-date on homework and grades through Gradelink.  

 

Students placing into 1st or 2nd grade level classes may enroll in one of our primary classes.  These classes combine math and and language arts into a weekly two hour class.

COVID-19 Update

School Closure:

Open House Cancelled

Our Open House scheduled for March 16th is cancelled.  We are working on putting together a Virtual Open House for next week.  An e-mail will be sent out with updates.

Admissions and Placement Testing

With children stuck at home, recommendations to socially isolate, and some local jurisdictions ordering residents to shelter in place, it can seem as if life is on hold.  School has moved online.  Children’s activities are closed.  Even classes at HEROES have moved online. As such, we’re also moving testing online.

 

HEROES Academy is still accepting applications for the 2020-2021 Academic Year.  In order to protect the health of students, parents, and faculty, we’ll be administering all placement tests and academic evaluations virtually….Read More
