Academics

Madeira's Academic Philosophy


At Madeira, we believe learning is active, experiential, joyful and personal. As each student immerses herself in our rich academic program, she is building and using her critical thinking, creativity and problem-solving skills. The goal is for the Madeira student to engage fully and whole-heartedly in joyful learning, while she collaborates with peers, builds relationships with teachers, and propels herself whether working in a group or independently. Madeira’s academic program, the heart of the student’s experience, remains personal and distinctive.

In the ’20-’21 school year, our teachers have intentionally designed innovative, developmentally appropriate, rigorous and girl-centered curriculum, in alignment with our Educational Philosophy. In order to meet the fluid needs of learners in this school year, all courses have been designed as hybrid courses. Through the strategic use of technology, students, whether on campus or learning remotely, can engage with teachers, peers, and course content. All courses are built around teacher-led and designed learning activities which require students to use and develop higher order thinking skills, engage with the teacher, engage with classmates, and engage with course material. As always, our goal is for Madeira students to immerse themselves in their learning in deep and joyful ways.
