(Ages 4-6)

Leapfrog engages young learners in an exploration of math, science, and literacy activities that are hands-on and inquiry-based. These classes nurture your child’s curiosity, allow their imagination to
flourish and foster a love for learning.

Stepping Stone
(entering grades 1-3)

Stepping Stone inspires children to explore new and exciting topics that incorporate inquiry-based activities, global themes and project-based work. Students will form friendships with other learners who share their passion for the same topic.

(entering grades 2-6)

Mosaic brings together a broader range of students in an effort to foster and encourage a patchwork of new ideas and lines of inquiry. With mixed-age groups, students learn from their instructor and
from one another.

(entering grades 3-6)

Soaring challenges learners to broaden their thinking through in-depth study of topics offered by our talented instructors. Classes will be taught with inquiry in mind, allowing students to express themselves creatively.
