Benefits of Outdoor Education

During the pandemic, many schools across the country tried outdoor learning as a way to boost students’ physical and mental health. At A+ Children’s Academy, we make outdoor education a regular part of our program, and we’ve experienced a host of benefits:

  • Engagement—When students are excited about a lesson, their minds are open to learning. The novelty of learning outside helps lessons “stick”. Outdoor learning fires up their curiosity which in turn helps students harness the full power of their brains to grasp new concepts.
  • Problem-Solving—the outdoor environment naturally inspires students to think creatively. They are more eager to tackle challenges and try new things.
  • Teamwork—Children enjoy working together in groups or pairs in the outdoor environment. They are more willing to work through challenges, find solutions, and compromise. Outdoor learning fosters cooperation and collaboration.
  • Imagination—Being outdoors engages the senses and encourages freedom of expression. Students are more creative and willing to explore new ideas.
  • Learning Differences—Students who may struggle with focus issues or other negative classroom behaviors, shine in the outdoor classroom. Being able to move more freely and work in a less structured environment is beneficial to many students with learning differences.

Under New Management!

In July, A+ Children’s Academy joined ACCEL Schools, one of the top-performing charter school networks in the United States. ACCEL serves over 80 public charter schools and over 30,000 students.

The ACCEL Schools Difference

We are a proud member of ACCEL Schools—a public charter school network serving thousands of PK-12 students throughout the United States. ACCEL was founded in 2012 by the early pioneers of online learning. Our leadership believes that all children, regardless of location or socio-economic background, deserve a quality education that prepares them to succeed in school and become productive global citizens.  

ACCEL Schools Instructional Model provides: 

  • Aligned Academics meet or exceed state standards ensuring your child is on track for rigorous college and career opportunities.    
  • Certified, Licensed Teachers and a student-centered staff are united in executing our mission to make a difference in the life trajectory of each student.    
  • More Time on Task and double the instructional minutes for ELA and Math maximizes learning in your child’s school day.   
  • Short Cycle Assessments keep track of how students are progressing in the program, giving teachers ongoing feedback so they can tailor instruction to your student’s needs.    
  • Individualized Instruction driven by assessment data means we are familiar with the needs of each child and set students up for success in each course of study.    
  • State Testing Preparation reduces the anxiety often associated with high stakes tests, helping our teachers and students feel confident with the structure and methodology of state exams.    
  • Academic Support including education technology, interventional specialists, and instructional aides assist students during the school day. After school tutoring, summer school, and Saturday school programs extend support services beyond the traditional school day and year.   
  • Extracurricular Courses & Activities round out our educational offerings providing students social-emotional learning, athletics, arts, service learning & more.
