From the very first days of school, through inquiry-based activities, a challenging core curriculum, and specialist classes, Lower School students build confidence in their ability to think and work both independently and collaboratively, making connections with their classmates, teachers, across subjects and disciplinary bounds.
At Pioneer Academy, we want our children to love coming to school to develop a strong sense of themselves as lifelong learners and leaders who will make a lasting and positive impact on their world.
As they are introduced to the world around them and the world of ideas, these young Pioneer Academy citizens acquire crucial foundational skills and deepen their understanding of how to navigate a shared world. They are encouraged not just to play or learn or study, but to think creatively and explore their curiosity, to stretch and to question with joy and without fear.
Helping them enhance their strengths while overcoming obstacles and challenges, we empower Lower School students to develop into well-adjusted, enterprising young people with a healthy appetite for greater knowledge, engagement, and achievement that is only enhanced by their budding sense of responsibility, mindfulness, and ethics.
