Discovery learning is still emphasized with  elementary students, as classes become more specialized. Students in this grade level should be able to read and perform basic writing skills. Some classes will require weekly homework assignments. Students may need to purchase books or additional resources.


Art with the Masters (1st to 3rd graders)

Tuesdays, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm 

Both new and returning students will be inspired with hands-on art activities that explore the styles and techniques used by famous art Masters. In this early elementary-level art class, childhood creative curiosity will be nurtured, and learning will look like play! Students will be introduced to the elements and principles of design, exposed to a variety of art materials, encouraged to experiment, learn by doing, all while acquiring the skills and techniques needed to create their own original works of art! Please note: the projects are new every year so students repeating this class will explore new techniques.

Elementary Math Mania (4th to 6th graders)

Wednesdays, 12:45 pm – 3:15 pm

Math Mania is a new course offering that brings your student a mix of fun and important math concepts. We will be taking apart (pun intended) fractions and discovering how to manipulate them with hands-on crafts, home cooking (yum), manipulatives, and other engaging methods! We will make our own "Gallon Guy" chart to help in the kitchen (yes, moms can use this too) and build a fraction burger together! We will be using Math-U-See as our primary tool to discover how a fraction may be added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided with visual tools to help it all make sense and stick long term! Fractions are the #1 math tool that is often forgotten or not mastered and is needed throughout a student's math journey- provide a strong foundation for your budding scholar! Students, don't fret- we will certainly not be doing math for 2 hours. The 2nd part of class will be spent learning and playing strategic games that all use math and logic techniques. We will learn a new game and then spend a few weeks learning how to play strategically and find "back-door" methods to earning points. Your child will be hooked, and zero electronics here! Instructor: Lisa Dennison

Science Discovery (2nd to 3rd graders)

Thursdays, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm 

Science Elevations is an introductory course for lower elementary-aged children. Students will learn scientific concepts through being curious and asking questions about the natural world, making observations, and sharing ideas. Skills are learned through hands-on activities, simple experiments, and inquiry-driven explorations. Concepts include the scientific method, motion and forces, electricity, magnetism, weather, life cycles and inherited traits. We will use the Savvas’ Elevate Science curriculum. Instructor: Betsy Ferrer

Upper Elementary Science (4th to 5th graders)

Thursdays, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm 

This exciting new science class uses Apologia’s Exploring Creation with Chemistry and Physics to introduce your younger explorer to the properties of matter and the basic building blocks of life- atoms and molecules. Together we will learn about the laws of motion and study energy in its many forms. We will investigate God's design for the states of matter and magnetism and finish our studies with a closer look at simple machines. There will be plenty of hands-on experiments and labs to explore and learn! Instructor: Lisa Dennison

Brave Writers (2nd to 3rd graders)

Thursdays, 12:45 pm - 3:15 pm

Brave Writer is geared for lower elementary-aged students.  Students will develop the steps of the writing process through directed practice and literature study, incorporating mechanics, grammar, vocabulary, and pattern-based spelling. Students will read a variety of genres, including narrative, historical fiction, poetry, informational writing, and incorporate key characteristics of each in their own writing. We will use the Brave Writer curriculum, supplemented by a variety of literature. Instructor: Betsy Ferrer
