In addition to the core subjects which will be taught in English and Spanish, there will be an advisory period everyday in which we will teach children how to focus, pay attention, and cultivate productive habits of the mind. We also have a Global Cultures period, in which kids celebrate each other’s cultures and even get to speak in their home language. Punjabi language elective is also offered as an option within the Global Cultures framework. Your child will be doing a lot more than a regular kindergarten program.

Yes, we will have an after school program as soon as COVID restrictions are lifted.
Teachers at Clovis Global Academy are fully credentialed by the State of California. Due to our innovative teaching model, our teachers have the flexibility to be more creative in the classroom as they design lessons around themes which connect different subject areas (this is also called thematic, transdisciplinary learning). Learning will be connected to the child’s existing knowledge using inquiry based methods.
In a 50/50 model, core instruction takes place in both English and Spanish. Each student will have two core teachers and will receive instruction from one teacher in English and one teacher in Spanish throughout the school day as they study language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and other electives.
High quality curriculum resources are used to design engaging and creative thematic, interdisciplinary learning units in alignment with Common Core Standards. We use American Reading Company (www.americanreading.com) for English and Spanish Language Arts, Envision 2020 Common Core for Mathematics along with other high quality print and digital resources.
Many students in the class will learn Spanish for the first time and will be supported by well trained teachers as they progress through stages of language acquisition at their own pace. Teachers in the Dual Language Immersion program are specially trained to make instruction meaningful through the use of visuals, objects, gestures, and specialized instructional strategies. The students also help each other.
The first day of school for the 2021-22 school year will be August 16, 2021.
CGA families have the choice to opt for in-person instruction or learn from home via e-learning. Both schedules are offered five days a week. We will continue to support our families choices. Our small size makes us nimble and we are able to adapt to the fast changing health and safety conditions in the County.
