Achim Academy’s Center for Education in South Florida is celebrating not only the beginning of another great new school year but also the start of a much anticipated gifted program. Students and administrators are excited to begin this new phase in the institution’s growth.
“Over eleven years of the school’s existence, we found that students who have difficulty learning are often also gifted, a dual exceptionality,” said Dr. Dolly Aizenman, academic director of the AACE school.
“They need and greatly benefit from individualized assistance in learning how to learn, and how to maximize their natural talent and gifts. Some need more assistance than others, but that’s the beauty of our school. An individualized plan is created for each student to suit his needs, abilities and to best develop his talents.”
The gifted program is open to boys 13 years and older. In addition to Judaic studies and academic course work, gifted students receive an individualized study plan in their area of strength.
Achim Academy offers younger students an array of exciting programming as well.
The school’s teachers are known for combining different aspects of study into fun and challenging lessons. For example, Rabbi Bukspan teaches his boys how to make PowerPoint presentations in computer class illustrating their Mishnayos or Gemara study topic of the week.
Achim Academy also addresses the needs of students who may need behavior modification and/or social adjustment as well as academic intervention.
