Enrichment Classes

American Academy is unique in that we offer a complete enrichment and extra curricular program unlike most public and private schools in the state. Academy students receive instruction in art, music, PE, computers and a special science lab to supplement the learning that goes on in regular science classes. All of our enrichment teachers are specialists in the area in which they teach. Enrichment classes take place in special purpose rooms designed and equipped for the subject area. At the fourth, fifth and sixth grade levels, students may chose electives in band, chorus, drama or additional art classes. We are well known for our Fine Arts offerings and present students with many opportunities to explore their talents through music and drama productions, art exhibits and competitions.
