About SCOPE Academy

Our History

In 2009, the Greater Summit County Early Learning Center (GSCELC) was established as a Public Conversion School housed in our same building. Sponsored by the Summit County ESC, the GSCELC started with two kindergarten classrooms but laid the foundation for future growth.

GSCELC Building

The GSCELC continued to grow and blossom, literally, adding classrooms, grade levels, and with the aide and guidance of some master gardeners, a large garden both designed and cultivated by our students. The GSCELC now serves kindergarten up through fourth grade.

Who We Are

Our Kindergarten through 4th grade educational staff deliver an integrated curriculum where content is connected intentionally in an interdisciplinary design. Our trained staff plans for a daily curriculum that places a rich emphasis on project based work where students are able to apply and build skills daily in the S.T.E.M. method of incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math as they research, problem solve, and create solutions as they work.

Our staff engages in guided facilitation, observation, interaction, and data collection to oversee children's learning opportunities, based on their interests and align with the targeted weekly outcomes/standards for individual growth and development. The adopted curriculums emphasize the use of routine and planned activities to work on selected goals and objectives by integrating them into the child's daily activities and life experiences. Children will also have the opportunity to engage in enriched learning experiences that emphasize foreign language, music, art, technology and physical education gross motor times are embedded throughout the day, as well as during weekly classes.

It is these goals, endeavors and achievements of our staff that help move us forward in understanding the important focus of stretching our school to an even better place for children, emphasizing their ability to be competitive through their skills in collaboration, communication, problem solving, curiosity, creativity, and risk-taking as they become independent learners in an interdependent world. It is truly our staff and their strong commitment to setting up our environment that cultivates the best possible learning formats for our students. We truly believe that our students, families, and our staff working together is the key to our organizational success!

We look forward to sharing our program with you and your child.
