As a Teaching Institution we strive to foster creative, critical, logical Educators who exploit their unique talents in original ways to become active, self-sufficient, contributing respectful members of society living positive values on their journey of life long learning and are well prepared and do equip the students entrusted to their care with these same attributes.

The philosophy of the Academy is a combination of three factors:

 

(1) Specialists are the best Educators. Colleges, Universities, High Schools, and (recently) Middle Schools have adopted this approach to effectively delievering education. Clearwater Academy begins with this approach in Preschool.

 

(2) Children are individuals. They talk, dress, think and live differently. Education must be directly related to the current level of the individual.  We emphatically believe every child can and will learn if the instruction is specifically tailored to their individual learning style and baseline competencies.

 

(3) Method of instruction is of vital importance to retaining and assimilating information. The Academy will match each individual to his appropriate style of learning which will result in an engaged student who actually assimilates the material offered. Parents are the ultimate authority regarding their child's method of instruction. Some parents will recognize their child relates well to the Steiner Method, others to deductive reasoning, still others to the Doman Method. No one method is right for all individuals. However, each individual deserves to be instructed utilizing the method of instruction best fitting that individual.

 

 Therein lies the philosophy of education at the Academy: 

 

SPECIALISTS EDUCATING INDIVIDUALS AT THEIR RESPECTIVE LEVEL UTILIZING THE METHOD OF INSTRUCTION MOST COMPATIBLE WITH EACH INDIVIDUAL'S STYLE OF LEARNING

 

Clearwater Academy recruits and admits students of any race, gender, color, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities. In addition, the Academy will not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarships / loans / fee waivers, educational programs and athletics/extracurricular activities. In addition, the Academy is not intended to be an alternative to court or administrative agency ordered, or public school district initiated, desegregation.
