high-interest leaRNING

Each day, your scholar will engage in the four core subjects: reading, math, science, and social studies. We use Expeditionary Learning (reading), Eureka Math (math), McGraw Hill - A Closer Look (science), and Houghton Mifflin (social studies) as our core curricula. 



Our core subjects are important, but we know kids learn best when they engage in a wide variety of subjects. Scholars have access to music, art, Spanish, character education, physical education, dance, computer coding, sports, and robotics across our schools. 


develop mind & body

During the school day, our campuses offer additional support for scholars through advisories, campus families, and a number of caring staff members. Beyond the school day, our campuses offer extra-curricular activities such as dance, rugby, clubs, basketball, computer coding.
