Our Programs

What we love to do and what's practical becomes so disconnected as we grow up. Exploring the avenues of joy and creativity to find our passion at an early age is likely the quickest route to increase the chances to achieve a balance. This process is not a point in time, rather, a journey our students go through that opens up so many possibilities. At Nextide Academy, we have added programs that will introduce the students to activities that will impact the community around them. As they surround themselves with the experiences, the awareness to what they want to become or what they want to create will grow.

Man is only great when he acts from passion.Benjamin Disraeli, British Prime Minister 1874 - 1880

Grades K – 5

Early Foundation


We have considered all that we have researched and know about the elementary school child and have created our programs that best meet the needs of this age. We encourage student independence and ownership as learning happens in small groups. Our learning center will provide the foundation for all academic areas and we are constantly introducing new concepts/programs to adapt to growing needs of our students. Our programs are tailored to the needs of our students as we understand that not all students learn at the same pace. Our curriculum and schedule allow us to move students through material at a pace that best meets their learning style.

We insist a strong partnership between parents and the school. We value the vital role that parents play in supporting our mission. We invite our parents to share their expertise and passion in the classroom. We make our students learn that learning happens all around us all the time.

Our K-5 students also observe and learn from and with our middle school and high school students, forming working and social relationships with a wide age-range of students right here. We truly believe we have built a special place and we welcome you to come talk to us to learn more about us.

Academics, After-School, & STEM

Traditional schools dictate the pace of learning. Time and again, we have forgotten that a typical academic year may be too long for some students and too short for some others. If kids are constantly at “above grade level”, we believe that they should have the opportunity to get to “their grade level” and move on.
Education must be tailored to the abilities of the individual. Our academic enrichment programs enable our students to enroll in courses matched to their abilities and are not discriminated by “time”. Nextide Academy offers a comprehensive and well-rounded education with courses based on solid research, sound pedagogy, and applied innovation. Nextide Academy offers courses from 1st grade to 12th grade.

Courses offered in Academic Acceleration and Enrichment are as follows: Reading, Math, Science.

STEAMSTEP is our innovative after-school program designed to give students the opportunity to explore various STEM and Arts content areas. The Daily power-hour of learning fosters curiosity and iterative learning. Our goal is to help our students explore their potential and make them better critical thinkers.

Our after-school program is an integral part of the educational experience, providing opportunities for students to explore new areas, develop their talents and become acquainted with our educational ecosystem.

We listened to the needs of our primary stakeholders,parents and students, and have designed our after-school program with the flexibility to tailor the same for each of our students.

Our daily power-hour activities include but are not limited to: debate, creative writing, piano , art, technology (3D-Printing, Robotics), trail walk, and indoor/outdoor play, etc .

Once our students get an introduction of these activities and find an increased interest level in specific activity, students are given the opportunity to broaden their imaginations by enrolling in specialized programs that we offer.

We target student’s curiosity and satisfy it through demonstration and observation that arises further curiosity that fosters deeper learning in areas of interest. Be apart of an after-school program that offers just the right balance of academics and extracurricular activities.

In a perfect world every child would master all the skills necessary to succeed academically. But children learn differently. In a school setting, teachers teach the same material differently. However, specialty schools expect certain results in certain subject areas. That’s why a standardized admissions test is a critical part of most private school admissions requirements. Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Fairfax County and Academy of Science in Loudoun county fall under this category.

These schools require a long term approach to admissions test preparation. At our K-12 Center, we monitor our students progress carefully, identify any deficiencies and re-mediate them. We also maintain a climate for academic success that prepares our students for competitive admissions tests.

Assessments

Predict your students’ future performance in honors and advanced placement classes, critical thinking classes, state proficiency exams, college admission and even in a career situation. The assessment considers faculties such as memory and academic initiative to determine a student’s potential, while evaluating a student’s strengths & weaknesses and the results of the assessment show how close a student is to fulfilling his/her potential so we know how to help!
The assessment will allow us to assist the students and parents to predict students’ future performance in honors and advanced placement classes, critical thinking classes, state proficiency exams, college admission and even in a career situation.
ACT Aspire is an assessment system that measures academic achievement in English, math, reading, science, and writing. ACT Aspire is linked to the ACT College and Career Readiness Standards, research – based information that makes test results meaningful by connecting a student’s ACT Aspire score to specific skills and knowledge important for college and work success.
We use this information to address areas for improvement, build on strengths and most importantly, impact our student’s potential.
Critical thinking is self-directed, self-disciplined, self-monitored, and self-corrective thinking.

Grades 6-8

Building Blocks


Middle grades are the most fertile years in a child's education. The transition from elementary to middle school can also be challenging to many students. Our programs are geared to address these challenges as we guide our students through these fertile years in realizing their potential and setting realistic goals.

Academically talented students will need new challenges, special motivation, and support. At our learning center, we will provide the opportunity for above-level testing, feedback on their abilities, educational resources, and encouragement to continue advancing educationally.

Students will be introduced to opportunities in special group projects to develop their social skills or in independent assignments that allow them to pursue their personal interests in greater depth. Highly-motivated, self-starting learners develop advanced critical thinking skills through project-based learning and interdisciplinary thinking. Students pursue authentic, creative projects and problem sets that challenge students at their individual level.

College / School / Competition Prep.

Traditional schools dictate the pace of learning. Time and again, we have forgotten that a typical academic year may be too long for some students and too short for some others.
