Curriculum Design
Our policy is to encourage the continuous evolution of our curriculum to meet the individual needs of our diverse population. The teaching team supports creativity and is expected to collaboratively develop the District’s curriculum plan. Our K-12 curriculum is integrated with New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and best practices. We provide real life interactive instruction in accordance with each Individualized Education Program. Our students are encouraged throughout their academic careers to prepare and plan for their futures in the workforce. Essential skills for their success are included but are not exclusive to critical thinking skills, technological literacy, financial responsibility, pro-social skills and cooperative group strategies. Our K-12 instructional team works closely with our surrounding community to provide real life experiences and opportunities to apply their learned skills via field trips and structured learning experiences.


Visual and Performing Arts

Our K-12 instructors work closely with our teaching team to integrate all subject areas and concepts. Students are encouraged to express themselves through various media. Their expressions are not only vital tools to increasing self-esteem, but they explore the arts to discover cultural diversity and societal development throughout history.

Testing
Creative Achievement Academy is approved to administer New Jersey’s required Statewide Testing.  Twice per year, students are also assessed through the KTEA. This assessment establishes functional grade levels for Reading, Writing, and Math. These levels are used to provide modifications and accommodations for grade appropriate instruction. 


READ 180

Creative Achievement Academy Schools are proud to announce the addition of the READ 180 Program to our schools. READ 180 is a comprehensive reading intervention program.  During 90 minute sessions, students are instructed at their individual levels. They participate in whole and small groups as well as independent reading time. Students also have individual time to use an interactive computer program to practice literacy skills via games and trivia. Scholastic touts success with this program because it is research based and data driven. Our students will enjoy continued success with this interactive program because technology is integrated, its content is of high interest and it is geared towards their individual learning needs.

Smart Boards
Creative Achievement Academy Schools have added Smart Board Technology to our educational program. Large, interactive, electronic whiteboards are quickly replacing the use of chalkboards as a learning source and enhances instruction in every subject. The digital whiteboards are in every classroom and run off of our wireless internet source allowing teachers access to large amounts of information for their lessons. The information on the digital boards can be stored, saved and shared so teachers can collaborate on lessons. Our students are excited by the new technology as they are actively involved in the interactive instruction.
