Winter Sports Program
Our winter sports program happens over six days in January and February. Students in grades 4-6 have an opportunity to choose from: cross country skiing at the Brattleboro Outing Club, downhill skiing at Mt. Snow, acrobatics at the New England Center for the Circus Arts, indoor activities at the Boys and Girls Club, and sledding or skating at Living Memorial Park. Students are able to participate in this wonderful program through parent support and fundraising. All 4-6 grade faculty members attend and support this program. Busing is available for all activities except downhill skiing.
Tutoring is offered to help support selected Academy Stars referred by their teacher. If you feel that your child could benefit from tutoring, please communicate with your child’s teacher.

Academy School participates in the national Math Olympiad program. Students in grades 4-6 meet in the Math Lab every Thursday morning at 7:30 to have fun practicing mathematical problem solving. Although modeled after the official Math Olympiads, this program, although challenging, is not competitive. This group meets once a week, every Tuesday morning at 7:30 before school. Both groups will continue to meet through March. New students are welcome to join through mid-November.
Strings is offered for beginners on Mondays and Advanced Violin is on Thursday. Music teachers from the Brattleboro Music Center teach these classes to 3rd-6th grade students. There is a fee for instrument rental and bussing is available until November 19. This is a year-long program with a break in December.
