Welcome to the Archimedean Upper Conservatory
The Archimedean dream began with a desire of a committee of Greek and Greek-American residents in Miami, Florida, who aspired to establish a series of educational institutions that attend, in an unparalleled manner, to the academic, social, and moral growth of its students. After the immense successes of its kinder-elementary and then middle schools, Archimedean Upper Conservatory, a conservatory of mathematics and the Greek language, joined the Archimedean family of schools, opening its doors in August 2008.
We view Mathematics as both a poetry of abstract elegant Ideas and as an important instrument to model nature, science, technology, engineering, economics, and human behavior.
For centuries, the Greek language has been an essential part of western civilization, with its deep connection to literature and scientific and humanistic vernacular. The teaching of the Greek Language in a partial immersion setting will bring to our students the benefit of bilingual education to the brain.
Philosophy strengthens our mission to teach the art of thinking. Our students learn how to express their ideas with passion and solid logic. Philosophy provides the balance of Humanities to that of Mathematics and Science.
Archimedean Upper Conservatory’s challenging and carefully designed college preparatory program is for those students wishing to reach their full academic and individual potentials.
With a program intentionally set up to produce students who are capable of successfully handling demanding coursework and course loads while balancing unique co- and extra-curricular enrichment activities, a skill certainly invaluable in college, students from freshmen year on taking two credits of additional academic coursework yearly compared to that required by the state of Florida. Students, therefore, graduate having completed a minimum of 32 credits of coursework, a total of 8 credits or 33% more than the 24 credit minimum state and district graduation requirements. Add to this high school credits completed in middle school, online, and through summer dual enrollment courses completed at F.I.U. and M.D.C., and some graduates finish their high school careers with up to and over 36 credits or over 50% more high school coursework than is typical and expected, an impressive feat to say the least.
Our Philosophy as an Education Institution
