Our curriculum goes well beyond “reading, writing, and arithmetic.” When you visit Morgan Academy, you’ll experience student projects ranging from papier-mache globes, 3D stinkbug art, and much more hanging from floor to ceiling on every available wall. In addition to teaching math, science, reading, history, and a foreign language, we strive to expose your child to the joys of learning of all kinds—alongside other highly motivated, well-rounded students.
We offer these added programs:
- Theater, theater performance, acting workshops, and talent shows
- Music appreciation and choir
- Hands-on art instruction from a local artist and local art shows
Morgan Academy students have enjoyed curriculum-based field trips to the White House, the Library of Congress, the Smithsonian, Colonial Williamsburg, Gettysburg, the Maryland Science Center, and even overnight trips to New York City and Philadelphia.
Additionally, we take advantage of our many local resources, with forays to the Shepherdstown Library, as well as Shepherd University’s library, theater, and concerts. And our physical education program offers outdoor sports, including a running club on the playing fields of Morgan’s Grove Park in Shepherdstown.
We’re also not afraid to test our skills; each year we send individual students and groups to local and state school social studies, science, and theater competitions—with consistent and ongoing success!
