KMC Academy: Where Learning is Our Passion and Kids are Making Change!

KMC Academy is an institution of in depth learning with a developing tradition of measuring success. Our faculty is dedicated to helping students succeed in today's global market by starting out very young with core foundational prinples that will translate into daily living and competitve knowledge. We adapt our curriculum to meet the needs of our diverse student body, taking into account the many ways in which students learn.

 

Anchored by tradition, we excel at:

  • One-on-one interaction with our teaching staff
  • Cultivating independent learning via remote instruction
  • Providing comprehensive mentoring programs
  • Fostering collaboration with the community
  • Enriching academic learning with long-term projects and extracurricular activities
  • Fostering diversity on campus and in the Long Island area

Our School

We offer one-on-one and/or small group instruction, itinerant services and alternatives for curriculum or teaching modifictions. Access to specialized services such as physical, occupational and/or speech therapy is provided in accordance with an Individualized Education Program (IEP).

 

There are 13 categories of disabilities:

  1. Autism

  3. Deafness
  4. Hearing Impaired
  5. Mental Retardation

KMC Academy offers 3 meals and 2 snacks per day for an additional charge. Food for thought...When is the best time to start teaching a child? At birth!

Do you believe that cameras in the classroom would be ineffective?

PROS:

  • Cameras in classrooms would provide a safety net for teachers. Though  classroom  management, in many ways, affects the delivery of information and how information becomes internalized by the students, disruptive student behavior can make or break a learning environment. Cameras would unveil behavioral aspects thereby encouraging a progressive learning environment.
  • Cameras in the classrooms would provide a safety net for students. Parents would be able to see their child's metacognitive process taking place, determine a need for alternative or corrective measures, and gain understanding of subject matters for assistance with homework.
  • Cameras in the classrooms would provide informational support towards improving education standards.

 

CONS:

  • Initially, cameras in the classroom would be a bit of a distraction.
  • Cameras in the classroom should only be on during teaching segments.

 

Extracurricular Activities

Whether it's science, sports, entrepreneurship or music, theatre, our extracurricular activities let students explore their particular interests and apply what they've learned in a hands-on environment. Music is an important component for exploration. Access to Music Education is supported by New York State core curriculum:

 

Standard 4 - Understanding The Cultural Dimensions and Contributions of The Arts

Students will develop an understanding of the personal and cultural forces that shape artistic communication and how the arts in turn shape the diverse cultures of past and present society.

Dance

Key idea: Students will be familiarized with dances from other cultures and times and recognize their relationship to various cultural, social, and historic contexts. Students will recognize that dance is performed in many different cultural settings and that it serves many functions in diverse societies.

Music

Key idea: Students will develop a performing and listening repertoire of music of various genres, styles, and cultures that represent people around the world and their manifestations in the United States. Students will recognize the cultural features of a variety of musical compositions and performances and understand the functions of music within the culture.

Theatre

Key idea: Students will gain knowledge about past and present cultures as expressed through theatre. They will interpret how theatre reflects the beliefs, issues, and events of societies past and present.

Visual Arts

Key idea: Students will explore art and artifacts from various historical periods and world cultures to discover the roles that art plays in the lives of people of a given time and place. Students will learn how time influences the visual characteristics of art work. Students will explore art to understand the social, cultural, and environmental dimensions of human society.

According to an article by Chris Boyd Brewer, entitled "Music and Learning: Integrating Music in the Classroom," music 'increases focus, supports Alpha State Learning and imporoves  memorization.' Songs, chants, poems, and raps can aide in improving memory of content facts and details through rhyme, rhythm, and melody. Teaching students through song or having them write their own songs is also a useful memory tool! (http://howtolearn.researchass.com/the-best-way-to-learn-alpha-and-theta-brain-wave-states/).
 

About Us

Faculty at KMC Academy are leaders in the community who share a passion for  teaching and learning, and a commitment to creating a supportive learning environment that is challenging, collaborative and engaging. We adapt our teaching methods to the individual learning styles of our students. Our modern classrooms make it possible to explore the world around us in a safe, encouraging environment. 

 

Concrete experiential learning outside of the classroom is a key facet to learning according to the combined philosophical theories of John Dewey, Lev Vygotski, and Jean Piaget whose theories focus on constructivism and learning. Hands-on and cultural experience facilitate 1) cognitive skill development and growth including critical thinking as students navigate through experiential lessons; 2) knowledge acquisition, transferring and application skills; 3) interpersonal and intra-personal competence; 4) decision-making skills; 5) practical competence; and 6) career preparation skills.
