Exemplary Programs
The mission of Milford Central Academy is to provide world class instruction to every student, in every class, every day. World class instruction is defined as a classroom where all students are actively engaged in appropriate and rigorous learning activities where the teacher is coaching and facilitating learning.

To accomplish this we will focus on three areas; curriculum, instruction, and continuous improvement. Our school works closely with the Schools That Lead Organization. Our improvement work involves two main areas; Student Agency and Constructive Feedback. Feedback will be provided to students and teachers in various forms to foster continuous improvement. Our work with student agency involves encouraging our students' growth mindset, sense of belonging and ability to see value in what they are learning. Our teachers constantly use feedback for improvement through our Student Learning Reflective Cycles, where they work as partners, gather data and reflect together.

Curriculum Highlights
Over the past school year we developed curriculum maps aligned to CCSS for all subjects. This year we will implement those maps and continue to blueprint and revise existing assessments to make them more aligned to the CCSS and the expectation for rigor. Content coaches from the Southern Delaware Professional Development group will continue to work with our science and social studies staff during PLCs.

To improve overall instruction, we will continue to develop effective, engaging teaching strategies. However, this year we will have a focus on argumentative writing and differentiation. We will be receiving specific writing professional development aimed at ELA and social studies through Schools That Lead and the University of Delaware. The ACCESS Project will provide ongoing professional development for our teachers, especially when working with students with special needs.
