ACT Prep

$545

with Cody Hutcheson

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 7, 2020 at 10 am, runs for 19 weeks

ACT Prep  

This ACT Prep course will emphasize ACT test-taking strategies, specifically math skills, language skills, reading skills, and science-reasoning skills. Students will study and practice listening and note-taking techniques, test-taking strategies, questioning and thinking skills, information retrieval, pre-ACT test practice, memory techniques, reading in the content areas, vocabulary development, and college application completion with the central goal to increase both subtest scores and composite scores. All four ACT subtests will be reviewed: English, Math, Reading, and Science Reasoning. 

NOTE: Students will be assessed based on an improvement model. An additional ACT prep book will be required for the course.

 

Physics

$540

with Cody Hutcheson

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 7, 2020 at 12:30 pm

This course will be a semester-long comprehensive introduction to high school physics. This course will cover the following topics: matter and energy, velocity, accelerations, force, energy, electricity, and magnetism.

Prerequisites: An understanding of Algebra II; prior exposure to physical science and trigonometry is preferred.

Please note this class will meet twice a week and will include 68 hours of class time with an instructor. This is a full year of Physics with a lab. 

An additional Class Materials Fee of $100 will be charged for lab materials.

 

Middle School Life Science II - second semester

$267
Calendar Next available session starts Jan 8, 2020 at 10 am, runs for 17 weeks

This is the second semester of a full year course.

This two-part course will meet for one hour a week for two semesters and is designed to serve as a supplement to a middle school general science or life science course for students in grades 6th - 8th. Although this course will involve some instruction, it will primarily serve as a laboratory experience to supplement at-home studies of course material. Emphasis will be given to note taking, introductory scientific writing, principles of experimentation, and data analysis/interpretation. The two-part course schedule is designed to follow the “Life Science For Middle School” textbook available from CK-12, although it will be appropriate for any course covering the topics found in this text. Course topics will include the following: cells, organelles, and organ systems; biotic and abiotic components of ecosystems; heredity; and natural selection.

This tuition for Middle School Life Science II includes a $50 lab materials fee.

2020 Class Dates:

January: 1/08, 1/15, 1/22, 1/29,

February: 2/05, 2/12, 2/19, 2/26,

Swings, Slides, & Spinners

$175

with Jessica Nunno

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 8, 2020 at 10 am, runs for 12 weeks

In this 12-week class, students grades K-2 will explore physical science concepts with springs, slides, and whirligig things! Hands-on activities, building toys, crafts, and games will fill each day as students tinker, play, and kinetically craft their way through all kinds of things that move.

Intro to Elementary Electronics

$150

with Jessica Nunno

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 9, 2020 at 11 am, runs for 12 weeks

In this 12-week course, 3rd-5th grade students will wield the power of electronics with hands-on projects that break down complex technologies into modular components so they can experiment, build, prototype, and invent! Students will use learn using items such as conductive dough as well as by "hacking" familiar household items.

 

 

Engineering I

$265

with Karl Liggin

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 9, 2020 at 11:30 am, runs for 12 weeks

This hands-on, project-oriented class will build on the concepts covered in Intro to Engineering. 6th-8th grade students will learn to identify a need, research said need, brainstorm possible solutions, and work on alternatives to solve the engineering challenges presented. They will work in groups to find creative solutions to design problems from multiple engineering disciplines, possibly from specialties such as mechanical, civil, aerospace, electrical, or biomedical. 

Germs and Microbes: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

$175

with Jessica Nunno

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 10, 2020 at 11 am, runs for 12 weeks

In this brand new course, students in grades K-2 will learn about how the tiny lives of germs and microbes impact the world. This course will take a closer look at the itty bitty science of microbiology and help young students see how our tiny friends impact us in big ways.
