The Prepared Mind Pillar at Athlos Academy of Utah is centered on academic programs that will prime students with the knowledge and critical thinking skills they need to excel. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to construct meaningful connections and deeper understanding of core content.
Our teachers use instructional strategies that promote curiosity, collaboration, and a culture of positivity. We believe having a Prepared Mind is as much about learning how to learn and succeed as it is about academic knowledge.
Athlos Academy of Utah uses two curricula for literacy:
Grades K-5 use Wonders
Grades 6-8 use StudySync
Athlos Academy of Utah uses two curricula for math.
Grades K–5 use Bridges math curriculum
Grades 6–8 use CPM math curriculum
Our intrinsic attraction to the natural world invites learners to engage in life, physical, and earth science content and practices. Through observation and experimentation, we come to better understand the scientific processes that impact the world in which we live. Athlos Academy uses selected Full Option Science System (FOSS) kits to support the science program and rich investigations. These hands-on, active science investigations promote analysis, deep conversations, and connections. In alignment with the Next Generation and State Science Standards, the Athlos science program also incorporates the engineering practices of analyzing a problem, developing a solution, and redesigning the proposal after evaluation.
In addition to FOSS, Athlos Academy utilizes original science units, developed with purposeful connections to the Healthy Body Pillar. All units are built around intriguing guiding questions, essential science concepts, inquiry-based activities, and meaningful connections. Our budding scientists have multiple opportunities to demonstrate knowledge and skills through engaging projects.
