After an extensive research, Shining Cross Academy has adopted the latest, most innovative and relevant standards in the nation. The Next Generation Science Standards are used beginning in kindergarten to help them to continue to explore the relationships in their own lives, then start to look outwards at the greater world.  In the STEAM lab, kindergarteners begin using iPads to program robots.

Utilizing FOSS science kits as our foundation to explore the world through hands on learning, kindergarten learns about materials and motion, trees and weather, and different kinds of animals.
