The purpose of EXTRA classes is to allow Academy students to explore new areas of learning, to provide instruction in special subject matter outside the normal realm of the curriculum, to build connections between our students and the community, and to focus attention in areas of individual strength or interest.
Students are offered on-site and off-site options. These classes are based on student, parent and teacher suggestions due to student interest. All classes are taught by teachers or parent volunteers that have experience in that subject.
EXTRA classes will be offered to every full day Academy student in primary class–middle school in 60 minute time periods on Friday afternoons. There are 5 sessions during the school year. Thus, students have the opportunity to explore 5 new areas of their choice.
