Group classes and time for individualized education create a balanced learning experience each day.

Students attend classes according to age groups to practice and apply math skills, interact with literature, discover new information, learn to cook, sing, and craft, play educational games, and so much more!

Explorers (Ages 9-12)

Adventurers (Ages 12-15)

Senior High School Students (Ages 15-18)

During Individualized Education Blocks (IEB) students settle into the comfortable, quiet Study Zone to work on independent assignments with the support of teachers, study with a classmate, meet with a focus group, or receive one-on-one instruction.
