School Notes:


E.A. Young Academy is founded on the philosophy that gifted, talented and high ability scholars:

  • thrive in an educational setting with other advanced scholars where the curriculum is differentiated and allows for mindful, in-depth study
  • require thoughtful attention to their social/emotional development
  • do not benefit from a setting that fails to make demands on their abilities
  • require faculty who are uniquely trained to select and adapt the content of curriculum to the mental caliber of each scholar they teach

Instructional Theory

Scholar centric education starts with detailed, multi-dimensional information about where each child is on his/her learning journey. At E. A. Young matching curriculum with the learning styles, expression styles, interests, and abilities of scholars is central to creating life-long learners. 

Instructional strategies are then adapted to each scholar’s specific learning needs. Strategies for each scholar incorporate:

  • Personalized instruction
  • Linking test results to skills and concepts aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
  • Self-directed, project-based learning driven by constructivist pedagogy
  • Personalized Learning Plans (PLPs) for all scholars emphasizing student needs and interests
  • Technology-infused environment and incorporation of 21st Century Skills
  • Individual/group projects complemented by multiple teaching and learning approaches
  • Differentiated instruction
  • Authentic Assessment

AP Capstone Program and Diploma

E.A. Young Academy is proud to offer the newly developed and prestigious College Board AP Capstone™ Program.  The AP Capstone™ Program is an innovative program focusing on the critical inquiry, research and communication skills.

Developed in direct response to feedback from higher education faculty and college admission officers, AP Capstone complements the in-depth, subject-specific rigor of Advanced Placement® courses and exams as well as the hands-on, minds-on philosophy that epitomizes an E.A. Young Academy educational journey.

E.A. Young Academy is one of just over 300 schools worldwide to implement AP Capstone™ and the only one, public or private to offer the program in Tarrant County.

The AP Capstone program is officially an Upper School endeavor but the life long skills needed to be successful in the program begin early at Young Academy.  Beginning in Kindergarten, each scholar participates in Quest, a dedicated, intentional time each day to Question, Understand, Evaluate, Synthesize, Team Build, Transform and Transmit.  This framework equips scholars with the power to explore academic and real-world issues from multiple perspectives. Through a variety of approaches – scholars will be challenged to explore complex questions; understand and evaluate opposing viewpoints; interpret and synthesize information; and develop, communicate and defend evidence-based arguments. Additionally scholars to design, plan and conduct in depth investigations on a topic of their choosing by using research methodology; employing ethical research practices; and accessing, analyzing and synthesizing information to present an argument.

School Reviews

We absolutely love EA Young Academy (the total enrollment of 39 isn''t accurate anymore, we''ve got more Firehawks)! This school is an amazing environment for gifted learners. Both the academic and social/emotional needs of the scholars are nurtured. The students are truly engaged in project based learning (both individual & group). We can''t say enough positive things about the faculty, staff and other families at the school.
