At Prince William Academy, our small class sizes enable teachers to gauge the individual needs and level of each student, and to provide the kind of personal attention that allows each student to thrive. Are students are challenged, but never frustrated. Whether they need a little extra help, or are operating one or two grade levels ahead, we work hard to accommodate all our students' needs.
We are a secular school that believes in preparing our students to become good citizens. We practice moral respect through role modeling by being respectful to the children, guardians, other staff, and the administration. "Yes, Sir" and "Yes, Ma'am " are routinely heard around our Academy.
We develop our own curriculum, drawing inspiration from Montessori practices and the International Baccalaureate Program. Our foreign languages program is designed to help our students become well-rounded, global citizens. Above all, our curriculum reflects our school's priorities and diverse character.
Please explore the pages for each grade level, and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have about our curriculum.
