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.

Distinct Bilingual Curriculum

For centuries, the Greek language has been an important 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.

Curriculum Overview

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

Archimedean Schools is attempting to bring new ideas and practices to the mainstream of American Public Education.

Innovation

Archimedean strives to fuse two mathematical curricula (the American and the Greek) which are taught in two different languages.

Originality

A Conservatory of Mathematics which is balanced with Philosophy is one of the original ideas that Archimedean brought in education.

Accountability

Our quality of education will be judged not only by state assessments, but by the acceptances of our graduates’ at top Universities and by the performance of our student at academic competition in sciences, mathematics and humanities. We expect our graduates to bring positive change and ethos to the world for a better future.

Excellence

We demand high performance by comparing ourselves to other academic institutions in the nation. We are Archimedean. Being mediocre is not an option.
