Curriculum Overview

NYA offers a progressive American education. Our curriculum includes English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Visual and Performing Arts, Music, Modern Languages, and Physical and Health Education. At NYA, our students’ social and emotional development is as important as their academic success. Helping students develop socially and emotionally is an integral part of our curriculum.

Our curriculum is aligned with American standards, such as Common Core Standards for English and Math, Next Generation Science Standards and National Core Arts Standards. We combine high academic standards with supportive and engaging teaching to ensure that our students excel academically and socially.

We believe that the way in which we teach is as important as what we teach. Our pedagogy emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach and inquiry- and project-based learning. We promote the development of creativity, collaboration skills, critical thinking and problem solving skills. We help our students become independent thinkers, self-disciplined and strong communicators.
