About: Brookfield Academy's mission is to instill in our students the confidence and desire to achieve their goals with a positive foundation in education to last a lifetime. Brookfield Academy graduates are prepared for the challenges of top Middle and High School programs, possessing higher-order thinking skills and work habits resulting from proven Montessori methodology, which approaches each child as an individual learner.
We address sequential steps in academic growth through careful assessment, allowing children to move ahead at their own pace within a carefully planned and prepared peaceful environment, fostering a sense of responsibility and independence in every child. We strive to offer a broad, meaningful education encompassing the mind, culture, emotions, social interactions and practical life skills of each student.
We proudly offer the highest standards in Montessori education with programs beginning at the Pre-Primary level, which includes Kindergarten, Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary through fifth Grade.
At Brookfield Academy, lessons are given in small groups. The children in the small group all have like abilities. These lessons are presented in a sequential order with one concept building on the one before.
Children live in a world of senses. Sensorial activities help the child to clarify, classify and comprehend her world. Besides enabling a child to clarify such concepts as size, shape, color, taste and sound, the sensorial materials also provide a basis for other skills such as music, math, geometry and language.
The concrete Montessori mathematical materials allow students to begin their mathematical journey from the concrete to the abstract. The 45 layout is the stepping stone to the four operations; it also helps children to learn the hierarchy of numbers in the decimal system.
