Spring is in the air, and so is Shakespeare!

Our students have been working very hard memorizing challenging lines, lively music, and museum "parts" for our upcoming Spring into Shakespeare.  The event is the second of only two fundraisers we host, and it is designed to showcase our students' talents and love of learning. They are so excited to share with you the hilarity of The Taming of the Shrew , the dark drama of Macbeth , the whimsy of A Midsummer Night's Dream , and the existential dilemmas of
Troilus and Cressida.

Our students will also perform several floor-stomping musical numbers during dinner.  In addition, guests are invited to attend the Elizabethan Museum  where our preK-2nd grade students will usher you into Queen Elizabeth's court with "live" displays from the era.

Rounding out the evening is our student art auction  featuring pieces from every grade.  We are sure you will have a delightful evening! For more information or to reserve your seat,  please click here.

Jungle Book Adventures with Mrs. Nestor & Mrs. Gale

Lis ten to the sounds of the jungle, the buzzing of the bees, the babbling brook, the hiss of the snake - snake?!  Yes, indeed, last week our preK-2nd grade students became acquainted with Jambo, a pretty python and close friend of Kaa from Rudyard Kipling's masterpiece,
The Jungle Book . The students are kicking off a new chapter in literat ure t his week, and Jamba was on hand to inspire their reading fun.  
Mrs. Nestor certainly has a courageous soul!

Veritas Van Goghs

Mrs. Gale's preK/K class has recreated Victor Van Gogh's The Starry Night with expert precision and enthusiasm.  Good job, students, and thank you Mrs. Pellett for helping the children create these masterpieces!

Welcoming Ohio's Legislature

On Wednesday of this week, our 3rd-8th grade students were privileged to welcome members of the Ohio House and Senate to the Campus Martius Museum for a luncheon given in their honor. The legislators spent the day in Marietta in anticipation of Gov. Kasich's State of the State address.  The students sang America the Beautiful and The Battle Hymn of the Republic.  In addition, 3rd grader, Aurora Cobb, recited part of Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech, and the 3rd-6th graders recited the preamble to the Constitution.  The students did a terrific job!
"I Have a Dream"


The Academy will host an Open House on  April 14 from 6:30-7:30pm . The Open House is an opportunity for interested families to tour the school and learn a little bit about classical education. If you know of anyone who might be interested in applying for enrollment, please invite them to attend.  
The Open House is especially significant this year as we are opening our high school - 9th and 10th grades - this Fall.
