Kindergarten is an enrichment based program that focuses on the themes/holidays of the calendar to help build the very basic early childhood skills.  We also focus on building social skills through group work, games and play.  We try to incorporate movement, singing and dancing to promote a positive, fun learning environment!

Elementary:

  • Language Arts-
    One area in which many students can use extra help is in language arts fundamentals.   Therefore, in this class we will be focusing on reading, writing, spelling and comprehension.

    Our art class encourages our students to explore their creativity.   We try to make it a fun and exciting class and encourage kids to learn how to use their creativity to create new things.

  • Spanish- 
    This is a friendly introduction to Spanish. For our youngest participants the curriculum will include some basic conversations and lots of songs and games.  Our oldest elementary students will delve a little deeper into some grammar and introductory verb conjugation. 
  • Physical Education- 
    This is hard to teach at home.  We focus on group and team games.

    Description to come
  • Science-

  • Middle School; Geometry:
    In this class we will learn about the basics of geometry such as angles, shapes and measurement.  We will then use that base knowledge to do some projects.  Examples of projects will be learning what angle to shoot the cue ball at a pool ball to make it in the pocket, designing a house or park - more detailed than a one day activity!  Learning about different trades that use a lot of geometry such as carpentry, surveying, carpet installers and a drafts person.   We will also be making and playing different games.
  • Middle School;  Logic:
    This class will really test your brain!  We will be playing many different logic and strategy board games.  We will work with pattern puzzles, different math logic skills and activities and different math puzzles.  Some of the logic problems and activities might be pretty straight forward, some will require much more thinking.  Every week will be different with a lot of thinking.  But most of all it will be a lot of fun
  • High School; Consumer Math:
    This class will be focused on housing, automobiles and transportation.    You will learn what you need to know to rent a house or apartment, the costs involved in living such as electricity, water, trash, groceries etc.  You will learn what goes into buying and owning a car such as renting, leasing or buying a car, paying for maintenance on the car, gas and insurance.  You will learn different parts of transportation such as planning a trip, learning how to take the bus, train, lightrail, or fly somewhere.  You will learn how to find the most economic way to travel and time zones.  This class will include a few projects which might include planning a cross country trip, researching how to buy a car or rent a house, how to share an apartment with someone, how to renovate a house or classroom and/or how to make and stick to a budget.
  • High School; Personal Finance:
    This class will follow Dave Ramsey's personal finance course.  We will watch videos and work through a workbook.  There are several activities involved as well as tests on each chapter.  You will learn how to balance a checkbook, how to be financially responsible, how to save money, how to make a budget and why it is better to save up and pay cash for things you want rather than go into debt to buy those things.\
