The Growing Early Minds classes are designed to challenge and engage advanced learners in grades one through four. Students will be exposed to advanced concepts and themes that feed their curious minds. Each class is small and designed to enrich learning and introduce new areas of interest, helping students expand their knowledge about the world and discover how much there truly is to learn. Social and emotional curriculum components will focus on fostering autonomy, encouraging development of growth mindset, and developing effective collaboration skills.
