BEFORE & AFTER
SCHOOL PROGRAMS

Our Before & After school program is based upon S.T.E.A.M activities. These activities take on an integrated approach to learning and teaching, which requires an intentional connection between curriculum learning objectives, standards, and lesson design/implementation. S.T.E.A.M is our definition of adventure to solve real-world problems through hands-on learning activities and creative design while having fun. Through S.T.E.A.M our students can draw a connection with passion and career exploration.

RHN


Every day we are shaping successful and responsible citizens through character development on a weekly basis. Our students are taught practical principles of character through various activities and exercises through RHN (pronounced RUN).




QUEST


Our Quests begin with an entertaining story, our students and their parents or caregivers are engaged through a series of quests that engage the families in unexpected ways of developing literacy. Each QUEST also includes methods to bring the learning into the home. With inquiry-based learning, the students' questions, ideas, and observations are placed at the center of the learning experience.




IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE


Through the integration of our academic curriculum into real life adventures, students make connections between concepts studied in the classroom and their applications to the world around us.
