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 strategies are then adapted to each scholar`s specific learning needs. Strategies for each scholar incorporate:
- Personalized instruction
- Project-based learning driven by constructivist pedagogy
- Technology-infused environment and incorporation of 21st Century Skills
- Individual/group projects complemented by multiple teaching and learning approaches

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.
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 are 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.
