The summer program has been developed to continue the academic program into the summer vacation months. We have observed that students benefit from continued study and instruction, and we have found that children who continue their studies in the summer do not experience the losses in basic skills that are experienced by others.

All is not work, however. An afternoon program of enrichment – arts and crafts, music, drama and physical activities – follows the academic instruction in the morning. The result is an enjoyable summer enhanced by solid academic growth.

Our after school program is designed to achieve two goals: first, to work around the schedules of busy parents by providing a safe after-school environment for children and second, to structure valuable extra-curricular experiences. These experiences, important to the emotional growth of children, include clubs, activities, and play. Immediately after school all participating students attend a homework period during which qualified personnel are available to assist students with their work. Following homework, various activities are offered, allowing students to explore their desired interests while others enjoy supervised play.

All children can learn and succeed if they are given the opportunity to grow at their own pace in an environment of educational expertise and knowledgeable support. The formula for success is to build a child’s confidence and self-esteem through the implementation of the latest educational practices and strategies.

We respect the fact that children reach their goals through circuitous routes and that they achieve their successes in their own time. Each child will make more successful progress if he or she has been given the time to process the information they have received. We view children as curious and active learners. Whether gifted, exhibiting attention deficits, or possessing unique learning styles each child will receive the individual attention necessary for success.

Meeting the needs of our students impels us to address a variety of learning styles and individual differences. We accomplish this objective by carefully analyzing the academic, social, and artistic potentialities of each student through interviews, initial testing, and continuous observation and evaluation after enrollment. The comprehensive growth of every child demands enriching experiences in every area of development – intellectual, personal, emotional, cognitive and physical. We balance their successes in the classroom with different types of experiences in art, music, drama and physical education, areas that open up a wide array of further knowledge and growth. Seeing the world through the eyes of a musician, artist or athlete often has the effect of creating a new vision for the child.

Teaching in a Different Way

In addition to our strong emphasis upon individualization, our non-traditional approach in the lower grades maximizes the individual child’s experience by having the children change classes at the end of each instructional period. Through flexible scheduling the child is afforded an extremely low student/teacher ratio in areas of greatest need, and experiences larger classes in areas where group work is important. This allows for exposure to a variety of teaching styles, different educational settings and a variety of techniques that build confidence for the ultimate return to the regular classroom. Each class represents a new and different opportunity to experience success throughout the day. This policy is maintained uniformly from the lower elementary grades through the high school years.

Mastery Learning

Mastery learning, employed in all grades, requires the setting of appropriate and realistic individual goals for each learning unit. We then encourage students to master skills and content while learning at their own pace, frequently assess student progress, working directly with students to analyze results, and insure that the final objectives of the learning program are achieved. We do not expect students to learn at a uniform rate; rather, we carefully monitor student growth and work with individuals so that they learn each skill as it is presented.

Life Skills

Our belief in the necessity of social and emotional growth inspires our character-building program. Integrity, honesty, friendship, loyalty and caring for others are among the many life skills that are constantly being reinforced. Children want and seek praise, but past experiences often have been just the opposite. The program emphasizes those positive attributes that bring children personal satisfaction. Knowing that life is truly the end result of the many choices we make, we help children use critical thinking to make sound choices and give them the tools with which to solve their problems.

Students at Killian Oaks Academy reflect a wide range of abilities, interests, and social and ethnic backgrounds. Art, drama, dance and performance at Killian Oaks Academy all afford the students opportunities for creative growth. The comprehensive program is comprised of aesthetics and critical inquiry, cultural and historical awareness, studio production skills, personal development and the development of awareness of self. A variety of projects provide opportunities for students to develop their talents and aesthetic sensitivity and encourage the pursuit of excellence in artistic self-expression. The art curriculum at Killian Oaks Academy prepares students for further studies in the arts as a profession and for a quality life as a consumer of art and advocate for the aesthetics of their environment.

Killian Oaks Academy serves children from 3 years of age through the high school years who demonstrate average or above intellectual ability, who do not possess special health problems, who are not professionally identified as challenged with severe emotional or behavioral concerns, but for whom individualization is an essential factor.

Admission to is determined by testing, recommendations, past academic and socialization records and personal interviews. Unlike other schools whose policies are likely to exclude, the school intends to accept all those students with unique learning styles who can profit from the program. A complete psycho-educational evaluation from an outside source, together with the recommendation of a medical, psychological or educational professional, is required.

Parents are required to submit a psycho-educational testing report with the application for admission. Reports of prior educational experiences, together with the on-site academic testing that is required of each student, determine the basis of the program that is formulated for each student and the placement and initial academic goals for the child.

Additional evaluations of the candidate’s skills and potentialities are conducted as part of the admissions and placement process. Typically, a student may be asked to spend a day or two at the school during the evaluation procedure.

Testing continues throughout the year to determine student progress and to serve as the basis for the continual modification of a student’s program. Testing for mastery consists of pre-testing and post-testing of discrete units or programs that have been assigned to the child. In this way unnecessary remediation is avoided for those skills already mastered. The post-test measures the degree of success that the student has exhibited for specific material, and a new program is developed based on these results. This system provides for efficiency and not only assures mastery, but retention, as well.

Students are admitted to all programs and activities without regard to race, creed or national origin. Please call our Admissions Office at (305) 274-2221 to schedule an appointment and school tour.
