Eagle Arts Academy, a charter school for Kindergarten through eight grade, is pleased to announce the release of its new arts and technology curriculum. The tuition-free charter school in Wellington, Florida is among the few Florida educational institutions to integrate a true artistic learning format that includes over 40 minutes of arts instruction every day. Students take classes in drama, acting, art, music, voice, and animation as well as coding and design.

School Founder Gregory Blount talks of the need to integrate knowledge from a diverse set of backgrounds for today’s students: “At Eagle Arts we have always believed in the importance of creativity. We are inspired by the truly great achievements of visionary Walt Disney who famously claimed “If you can dream it you can do it.” We developed our curriculum with this concept in mind to bring the latest in technology and creative learning to our students.”

The school has created a project-learning concept by teaching an overall 15-minute group session before creating smaller groups for students to be rotated through learning centers that foster multidisciplinary and holistic learning.
