Finn Academy utilizes curriculum developed by EL Education (K-4) and Uncommon Schools Reading Reconsidered for (5-7) English Language Arts. Each unit/expedition takes our scholars through a deep dive into an engaging topic, with a focus on integrating inquiry-based learning and interesting content. All expeditions and units challenge our scholars through reading, writing, research, exploration, and discovery. As a school, we work diligently to ensure that we “Finnify” curriculum by connecting the content to local experts, community organizations, and special area instruction, starting each expedition with an exciting “kick-off”, and celebrating learning in a culminating event.
Finn Utilizes Go Math! Curriculum K-7. Go Math is written in an inquiry style and ensures programmatic continuity and a common assessment and resources for scholars and Finn staff.
A kit based science and engineering curriculum support our STEM and integrated classroom programs to ensure experience based lessons and hands-on projects for scholars.
Lastly our Social Studies and Humanities program is supported through an inquiry based program through TCI’s History Alive in grades 5-7.
