ESAA offers a rigorous project-based academic program with a focus on innovative thinking and creative problem solving using the Multiple Intelligences. Students are taught and encouraged to become independent, self-directed learners in an engaging 21st century format with a focus on literacy and numeracy. Our approach allows students to make connections, to notice patterns, to analyze, and to problem solve through multiple perspectives. Students begin to learn to develop their own reasoning around concepts and ideas. ESAA is a collaborative learning environment that uses visible thinking routines and creates the opportunity for students to articulate their thoughts and reasoning.
