Life Portal (Grades 6-8)
Gain the confidence you will need to make it through the challenges that lie ahead. Make good decisions as you explore many portals of opportunity.  Communicate, create, cooperate, and discover through a variety of physical, technological, and artistic experiences that will transform you into a remarkable and productive young adult.  “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are,” (Theodore Roosevelt).

Step Up (Grades 3-5)
Step into an amazing path of creative exploration.  Build on individual and team successes and learn to overcome obstacles.  Form friendships, develop leadership, and make personal connections with your world.  Stretch your imagination, your mind, and your body as we problem solve and play.  “Creativity comes from looking for the unexpected and stepping outside your own experience,” (Masaru Ibuka).

Applause (Grades 1-2)
Give applause to your abilities.  Join your friends in an amazing frolic through movement, literature, and crafts . Express your Whing-ding-dilly ideas,  delight in your curiosities, and have good old giggle-some fun as we build friendships, find truths, and share a burst of positive energy.

Watch us Grow! Plant the seeds for success by nurturing your skills in reading, writing, math, and computers. Unlock the gates to your imagination and explore the secret garden of books. Learn to express and communicate your thoughts and ideas through speaking, listening, and writing. Watch your spiritual, physical, emotional, social, and cognitive self grow through integrated learning activities and meeting new friends.
