Abess Center for Environmental Studies (ACES)
is an enrichment program unique to Miami Country Day School. Students, PK3 through 4th grade, explore Earth's biodiversity and environmental issues through exciting "hands-on" activities.
Using a multiple intelligence approach, students actively participate in projects as scientists, researchers, journalists, nutritionists, mathematicians, authors, illustrators, poets, gardeners, teachers, script writers, cooks, and young, socially conscious entrepreneurs. The students develop skills that will be used throughout their lives.
At the Abess Center, learning science from our daily surroundings is as exciting for the teachers as it is for the children. We have the pleasure of sharing the process of discovery with our students who have unlimited curiosity about the world around them. Our program at the Abess Center for Environmental Studies provides a wealth of interesting things to wonder about and explore. Please feel free to visit when classes are not in session.
