The Shiminly Curriculum
Learning should be a dynamic process that engages each student and encourages them to grow. With that core concept in mind, we developed a learning system where students can actively participate in, and even direct their own educational process. Students in our program experience learning through experimentation and inquiry, a more natural method than the traditional teacher-focused lecture.
We designed the Shiminly curriculum around seven central competencies that encompass the topics and skills the next generation will need to be successful global citizens. Within each level (SUN, MOON, and STAR), we offer 800+ unique lessons that address more than 100 different topics, all chosen with the future in mind.
What sets our program apart from many others is the innate inclusion of Shiminly Skills in each lesson. Shiminly Skills are the universal proficiencies that allow students to take their academic learning and successfully apply it in the real world. Qualities such as perseverance, respect for others, and responsibility are best learned through demonstration and practice, and they are built directly into the Shiminly curriculum. Our academic and Shiminly skillset comprises more than 200 different interdisciplinary learning targets.
With more than 50,000 minutes of educational content, the Shiminly curriculum grows with your child to deliver the learning experience of the future every day.

Language and Literacy
Self-expression is a huge part of the growing-up process, and we seek to ensure Shiminly students can fully express themselves. While reinforcing fundamental literacy skills, Shiminly students have the chance to use their creativity, learn more about the world, and bring their ideas to life!
