Main Curriculum

Earth Science
In our science course, students will investigate the world around them through hands-on learning activities. STEM experiments will challenge students to think critically, make predictions, and problem-solve while exploring Earth Science-related topics. This course will help students draw connections to their daily lives while collaborating with classmates.

Art Program
In our art course, children will explore a different genre and style each week. They will examine and discuss artwork, take virtual gallery tours, participate in fun interactive games and quizzes, and practice various techniques. Students will finish each term by applying their new knowledge and creating their own custom artwork.
