Check back in February for 2021 information.

Elementary

Incoming Grades K-6

Avoid the summer brain drain with a wide range of academic and enrichment classes offered live online! Help your student get ready for the next school year with grade-specific prep classes, go back to the basics with our brand new fundamentals series, or focus on fun with enrichment classes. Learning groups will be kept small to ensure every student receives individualized attention and a positive online experience!

Middle School

Incoming Grades 7-8

Help ease the transition into middle school, or give your soon-to-be high school student a head start, with offerings in academic and elective-style classes. With live online classes of their peers, smaller learning groups make it possible for students to receive the intellectual and social engagement that is so important for middle schoolers.

High School

Incoming Grades 9-12

Live, online classes in a variety of academic and enrichment classes will help prepare high school students for the upcoming school year and beyond. Students can get a jump-start on math for the coming year, prepare for ACT and SAT, or explore interest-based classes to develop real world skills.
