Academy Programs


Band and choir are offered to students of all grade levels in which they can develop critical cognitive function. An important part of this program is class performance.


Will Carleton Academy introduces students to a variety of media and art appreciation. Art is taught using the Masters of Art with The Elements and Principles of Design tied into the Michigan Framework.  There is an Art Show each May to display all student art.

Physical Education

The Montessori Method works with the whole student. Physical activity and awareness is a critical element in this method. In all grades, students are required to participate in Physical Education.


Students are introduced to basic grammar, language skills, and the customs of the language.


Instruction is offered in each learning environment and in the technology lab. Technology is integrated with core subject areas and students will apply their technology learning throughout each of the classes/activities.
