Academics Overview


The Gooden 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 and teachers helps students to reach this goal by setting daily objectives that focus on student achievement and growth. Teachers use a variety of teaching methods to maximize each student’s potential.

The curriculum provides opportunities for students to master skills, while forming good work/study habits and developing a genuine joy of learning. A classical education is emphasized and instruction focuses on core subjects: language arts, reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, and foreign languages (Spanish and Latin). Students in all grades participate in the technology program, and in visual and performing arts. The Lower School students also participate in a formal library program.
