Shelton Academy, a new, state-of-the-art preparatory school in Doral, is one of the first in Florida to fuse a new philosophy with a 21st Century approach for grades K-8
The Reggio Emilia educational philosophy which originated in Northern Italy has historically attracted worldwide recognition by educators and researchers alike. Prestigious companies like Google have recently integrated the Reggio Emilia philosophy at their onsite preschool.
Shelton Schools provides a “Joy of Learning” pre-school campus along with the Academy to offer childdirected education in which where students are encouraged to become independent thinkers, innovators, and competent to lead socially and intellectually fulfilling lives.
According to Georgina Prats, CEO of Shelton Schools, the academy’s vision is to inspire a lifelong passion for learning by providing enriching educational layers encouraging the child to discover, connect, create and excel.
Supporting a creative and exploratory environment, the school’s 55,000 squarefoot facility is open to different uses to create openness and sharing not only for students and teachers, but for parents as well.
A gymnasium, multi-use court that will include basketball and volleyball courts, is currently under construction along with a large swimming pool and splash pad, scheduled for completion during the spring.
