Personalizing Pathways. We challenge the status quo of education with our unique approaches –customizing instruction for each student – doing this the GA Way.
Executive functions is explicit and embedded every day in GA. We intentionally support each student’s unique strengths and learning to address inner and outer organizations, make effective attention decisions, learn about flexibility, and support goal setting. We take the time to teach our students about the concept of time and time management.
Structured Literacy (Orton Gillingham Tutoring)
We strongly believe that the positive relationships with our students is what makes our community so special. We are proud to be champions for every student at GA. We don’t give up, we lean in to help. We collaborate on solutions that make sense. We personally invest in the person. We don’t make judgments on a student or a family, we support and empower. We don’t make excuses, we make a difference.
College, Career, and Community Pathways
Glenwood Academy supports a comprehensive approach aimed at early exposure to self and career exploration in the ever-changing global economy. Creating real world relevance and empowering students to become responsible in their learning pathways to their future selves maximizes investment in their educational experience. The exposure and practice each student gains to different careers helps them to embrace a path where their strengths, talents, and values are needed in future careers.
We respect each student’s dreams and desires for their future. Students gain necessary career skills by leading and managing the popular GA Cafe. They are able to explore their interests in various career and college pathways through dual enrollment classes at Howard Community College. Our seniors benefit from hands-on training and experience in off-site internships that match their personal strengths and interests.
