Kabbalah Children’s Academy curriculum strives to create curious, critical thinking, lifelong learners who develop international mindedness and moral characters.
Students study eight subjects. They make connections between subject content and real world issues. They also learn communication, social, self-management, research, thinking skills and develop international mindset trough IB learner profile.
Students work independently and collaboratively, reflect on their own learning and their peers, complete research and analyze information and confidently present their learning.
Middle Years Program requires depth of knowledge in the subject areas. The units are designed around concepts instead of topics. For example instead of learning about historical events in time sequence the unit may be on revolution and look at it from a global perspective by talking about why it happens, where has it happened, what the results of it are etc.
The units enhance students’ understanding of the world and the program creates opportunity for responsible action through community service.
Technology is used throughout the classrooms.

The Community Project
KCA students learn from age 3 that everyone can make a difference. In middle school students take action through community project which gives students opportunity to develop awareness of needs of others and the environment. Action and community service is the result of an in-depth inquiry in their subject areas.
The learning activities are differentiated in class acknowledging that all students learn in different rates and in different ways. The assessments provide feedback for improving their knowledge and skills. There is a specific rubric for each of the subjects generated by IB that teachers use for scoring that has 1 to 8 scale. Students get chances to improve their scores on their assessments by continuing to work on their assignments until it is mastered.
