Scottsdale Academy utilizes Beyond Centers and Circle Time® Curriculum, and we supplement with lessons from a character development curriculum – including the Kindness Curriculum® or the I Love You Rituals®. The Beyond Centers and Circle Time® Curriculum is based on goals and objectives that are age appropriate.
