Academics Overview

The Gooden School academic program is designed to prepare students for the demands of a college preparatory program in high school. A faculty of passionate and well-qualified teachers helps students achieve this by setting objectives that focus on student achievement and growth.

Teachers use a variety of teaching methods to maximize each student’s potential, and the curriculum ensures students master skills, and develop excellent work/study habits as well as  a lifelong love of learning. A classical education is emphasized and instruction includes core subjects such as language arts, reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign languages (Spanish and Latin). Additionally, all students participate in the STEAM program and in visual and performing arts.
