Curriculum

The Wilson Academy has its own curriculum geared towards cultivating nationally competitive students. Our curriculum focuses on critical thinking skills; and as a result, our students are able to proficiently use logic, deductive reasoning, and problem-solving skills.

Year-round Schedule

At The Wilson Academy, we operate on a year-round schedule. Rather than the traditional 8-10 week summer break, our students have a six-week summer break, with several week-long breaks throughout the school year. As such, our students have more continuity, and more opportunities to learn. Studies show that students enrolled in year-round programs typically outperform students in traditionally scheduled programs.

Individual Growth Concept

At The Wilson Academy, your child isn’t a number. Every student has different talents, skills, interests, and learning curves. As such, students often require different paths to success. At The Wilson Academy, we focus on individual growth.  One of the ways we do this is by teaching based on ability rather than grade level. 

STEM

The ten highest earning careers upon graduation are all STEM careers. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. If our students are to succeed, they must be equipped with STEM skills. It is for this reason that The Wilson Academy has incorporated a STEM focus into our already rigorous and well-balanced curriculum. We work with STEM consultants to incorporate math and science content that is both valuable and practical.  

Financial Component

Now, more than ever, our students need to be prepared to thrive in an ever-changing world economy. That’s why at The Wilson Academy, we have a financial component. Wherein some Georgia private schools offer finance classes as electives, financial proficiency is incorporated within our core curriculum at The Wilson Academy. Our students are taught how an economy works, how to properly budget their money, and how to make their money grow.
