Our Academic Approach

Making Content Standards Come Alive

Learning Expeditions are the signature Expeditionary Learning curricular structure. (Grades K-8)

Learning Expeditions make standards come alive for students. These long-term, in-depth studies offer real-world connections that inspire students toward higher levels of academic achievement. 

Learning expeditions involve students in original research, critical thinking, and problem solving, while build character and academic skills. All learning expeditions explicitly focus on building literacy skills, particularly in reading and writing informational text and writing from evidence.

 Learning Expeditions at Entheos Academy are cross-curricular, meaning that a variety of subjects connect to the learning. They can include all subject areas such as reading, writing, science, art, and music. 

Expeditions are created through a collaborative teacher process, and include elements such as fieldwork, service, connection with experts, and a high quality final product. 

To learn more about your child’s current Learning Expedition, we encourage you to contact their teacher. 

Some grades and teachers use the EL Education, Language Arts Modules as a basis for creating their learning expeditions.

Additional Resources

Sometimes students need additional help to reach their academic potential.

In cases where the curriculum does not meet a students’ specific needs, Entheos Academy selects evidenced-based resources tailored specifically to the needs of your child.

Reading & Math Supports

Occasionally a student will not make sufficient progress through their current intervention; or has been unable to learn with other teaching strategies and require multi-sensory language instruction; or requires more intensive structured literacy instruction due to a language-based learning disability, such as dyslexia.

Entheos will select the curriculum that we feel best meets the needs of the individual student, and some of the more frequent supports are shown here.
