CREATIVE WRITING: [NEW GROUP CLASS!] MEDIEVAL KNIGHTS: Hone your creative writing skills when you become all the characters in a game of chess. Learn all about the medieval times including what the King’s court ate for dinner, how to make a castle, how to build a catapult, and have fun chronicling your experiences.
READING AND SPELLING: “Code Cracker Cases” covers phonics, spelling, handwriting, fluency, and comprehension using a detective theme. Students are taught critical thinking and problem solving skills as they search for reading/spelling patterns in words. Thus, the student eliminates the need to guess at words or to endlessly memorize words. Students are motivated by playing highly interactive and physically active games – which allow them to apply their newly developed skills while having FUN!
LANGUAGE ARTS: “Construction Zone” is a complete writing and language arts program developed also using imaginative and interactive games. It covers grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, writing paragraphs, and essays. Now that the student has learned the fundamentals of reading, they can have fun learning to write.
MATH: “Pursuit of Pirates and Mermaid Lagoon” is an interactive math program once again incorporating the highly effective game format that students, teachers, and parents enjoy. This program makes everything from elementary math to algebra, and even calculus, fun and exciting.

ART: In “Beautiful Worlds” kids (ages 5 and up), Teens, and Adults explore the visual world of shape, line, form, color, geometry, composition, and design with materials ranging from charcoal and chalk to collage and paint. All of our art students learn from the ideas of master artist’s throughout history and explore drawing from observation as well as from invention (working from their own imagination, memories, and visual experiments).
