Enrichment program for middle and high school students
Critical Thinking : emotional intelligence : financial literacy : household maintenance : other topics
1. Is this program just for Special Needs students?
Absolutely not; this program is geared towards all students.
2. My kid already knows all of this stuff; why should he/she take this course?
We would be surprised if anyone knew ALL of what we teach. In fact, even as reasonably well adjusted adults :-) the writers of this curriculum learned something from every lesson that we created! And even if they know some of it, it will not hurt for the lessons to be reinforced, important as they are, especially with interaction with classmates and teachers who may help them to see them from a wider perspective.
3. I can teach this to my kids myself; why should they take this course?
A couple of points are in order here:
A lot of the services we pay for could be done by us, on a basic level, if we had enough time, Unfortunately, our busy schedules do not allow us a lot of time.
They will be getting a richer perspective on our subjects in our class, with our meticulously researched curriculum, qualified teachers, and interaction with other students.
4. Why is this not free?
We are a business, and have expenses, such as salary for our teachers and rent. We feel our price of $20/hr is comparable with academic tutoring services. If you wish to compare with other types of services, $20 is what it will cost you to have your lawn mowed one time. We feel that an hour of life skills instruction for your child which will help him his whole life is a far greater value.
