Our middle school program is tailor-made for students in this age group. Its relaxed setup allows for our students to develop a true curiosity and love of learning without the pressure of testing or grades.
Executive functioning and social skills are a primary focus for our middle school students, as these skills are required for moving into high school. See Director Lockey Coughlin's article about this stage in childhood development for more insight.
Academically, our focus is on the love of learning through exploration and curiosity. Individualized curricula help students to move as quickly as they prefer, while also learning as deeply as their interest takes them.
Our programs are mix-and-match to offer flexibility, convenience, and affordability. Blend for a full 5-day-a-week program, choose just one day with which to supplement your current curriculum, or combine programs to meet your unique educational goals.
Parents decide how much they would like to be involved, how structured their child's day will be, and how often their children attend classes, clubs, groups, before and after-hours programs, and more. If that feels like too many choices, we offer guidance based on your individual goals. See below for all of your options.
