Throughout the year students are invited to get involved with various activities on campus, including the Dr. Seuss Breakfast, Scholastic Book Fair, Annual Spelling Bee, various Spirit Days, Science Fair, History Day Fair, Pasta-for-Pennies, and various Community Service Projects.
The Classical Academy plans family friendly field trips every year for students and their families to attend. These field trips align with classroom learning in history or science. One of the field trips is large on-campus experience in which the campus is transformed into a historical era, and students are invited to explore the food, music, art, culture, and dress of that era. Past field trips have included: Greek Day, Asian Dynasty Day, Colonial Day, and Native American Day. Off campus field trips, such as Legoland, SeaWorld, The San Diego Zoo, museums, and missions, align with unit studies. Students in grades 4-8 have the opportunity to take educational and enriching overnight class trips, including Sacramento/San Francisco, Pathfinders Camp, Astrocamp, Catalina Island, and the East Coast.
The Classical Academy annually hosts Super STEM Saturday, a science event that encourages students to get hands on experience and learn about Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. This year’s STEM event will be held in March at California State University San Marcos.
Optional leadership courses (Associated Student Body) for middle school students teach the value of becoming self-motivated leaders with integrity and purpose. The core curriculum has been adapted from the Situational Self Leadership program by The Ken Blanchard Companies. There are three years of ASB, beginning in 6th grade. This optional class meets weekly and has a homework and community service requirement. Students are encouraged to initiate opportunities to serve their family, school, and community throughout the school year.
