City Academy's specialist model reflects an international approach to teaching, allowing our teachers to focus on instructing the one subject about which they are most knowledgeable. This means that our students receive instruction in every subject from teachers who are experts in their content area.
City Academy's Buddy Morning event pairs community "buddies" with students, cooperating on projects related to each grade's current studies. For example, third grade students and their buddies created business cards and ads as part of a business development unit, fifth graders put on a play, and sixth graders wrote short stories with their buddies.
Parent Involvement: Parents volunteer 20 hours each year
