Introduction to Grammar

Most students take Introduction to Grammar in 3rd or 4th Grade.  Introduction to Grammar introduces students to Five-Level Analysis, a strategy for analyzing language to assess quality and clarity.  Students learn the eight parts of speech, the parts of a sentence, prepositional phrases, appositive phrases, clauses, simple sentence structure, and compound sentence structure.  After learning to identify grammatical units in writing, students learn to use this knowledge to revise and edit their own writing.  


Students complete a mid-year project that requires research, writing, revision, and editing.  Each student produces a hard-cover encyclopedia based on a topic of their interest.  Past topics have included dinosaurs, astronomy, mathematics, dogs, soccer players, dragons, and more.  At the conclusion of this project, family and friends are invited to Story Time.  Each student reads and presents their book at this event.

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
