Multi-Age Concept Learning
At New Bedford Academy, we educate grades K-8. we use a Multi-age Concept Learning Approach to educate within the academy. Students’ needs are met, and growth is obtained through MULTI-AGE groupings, whied “Learning Families” and “Teams”. Students are afforded the opportunity to develop at their own rate, tutor others, and interact with students of different ages. They will have opportunities to collaborate on areas of central study, yet still have smaller group time to work on various skill-based areas. Students excel academically through a collaborative partnership between the teachers, students, parents, and the community.
