The 5C program
The Academy has developed a comprehensive school model that incorporates four distinct, but related, learning domains of Childhood, Class, Club and Culture, which are integrated into the curriculum. These are complemented by the Community domain which focuses on engaging parents and families to support student attendance, school readiness and wellbeing.
The enriched program offers a range of activities which aim to deepen critical thinking and problem-solving skills, stimulate a life-long love of learning, build team-work and public-speaking capabilities, and develop self-confidence and social cooperation.
We are confident that in delivering the 5C education model, we can meet the challenge of providing every child with the opportunity to develop to their full potential.
Our team of expert local professionals deliver a comprehensive education model. We partner with the National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI) to ensure successful, high-fidelity implementation of Direct Instruction (DI) into schools, including providing continuous administrative and curricular support to schools and districts as they implement DI programs.
NIFDI also conducts, promotes and publicises high-quality research on the outcome of DI implementation in schools. The organisation is uniquely qualified for these tasks as its founding members—including Siegfried Engelmann—are the creators of the Direct Instruction program. Its implementation support consultants are experienced teachers with advanced degrees, and between five and 25 years’ teaching experience in Direct Instruction. Many of the senior consultants are also co-authors of the DI programs.
