The Kids’ Academy program offers a half-day schedule packed with engaging, enrichment activities. From hands-on projects to interactive lessons, your child will have the opportunity to explore new interests and develop skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Field Trips and Engaging Activities:
We understand the importance of learning beyond the classroom. Kids’ Academy will include enriching field trips and engaging activities, providing your child with memorable experiences that go beyond traditional academics.

Smooth Transition to Middle School for Incoming 6th Graders:
Kids’ Academy is not just about fun and games; it's designed to ease the transition to middle school. Through exposure to the middle school building, interactions with future staff, and collaborative activities, your child will gain familiarity, confidence, and comfort with the upcoming changes.

Building Confidence:
Confidence is key to a successful transition. Kids’ Academy will focus on activities that empower your child, helping them to build the confidence needed to navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with entering middle school.

Peer Interaction and a Fun Time:
A crucial aspect of the Kids’ Academy program is the opportunity for your child to spend quality time with future peers. Through team-building exercises, group activities, and shared experiences, we aim to create a supportive and inclusive environment where friendships can flourish.
We understand that this is a significant milestone for both you and your child, and our goal with the Kids’ Academy program is to make this transition as seamless and enjoyable as possible.
