Extracurricular Enrichment

Supporting Student Passion, Interests, and Talents outside of Academics

OUR EXTRACURRICULAR PROGRAMS

Our comprehensive and dynamic curriculum is designed to equip our scholars with academic, creative and skills training to help them thrive in their future endeavors. Through a holistic approach, we provide a wide range of educational, creative and wellness opportunities to help our students discover their passion, develop stamina and consistency in skill building, and have fun outside of their rigorous academic schedule.

Many of our scholars attend schools with limited resources for extracurricular activities, but we believe they are essential to their development and growth. It is through partnerships and caring enrichment programs that support our students, that we are able to provide this extra enrichment for our scholars.

EXTRACURRICULAR PARTNERSHIPS

Our scholars engage in activities that boost their intellect and well-being, thanks to partnerships with top organizations in filmmaking, debate, and yoga & mindfulness.

  • Our scholars dive deep into the art of documentary filmmaking, and are guided through idea crafting, story telling and pitching. They explore the nuances of bringing compelling narratives to the forefront.

  • We develop their ability to shape and communicate their ideas clearly and persuasively.

  • Collaboration and teamwork are at the core as students assume various roles, from directing to scriptwriting.

  • The program builds confidence and encourages students to embrace risk-taking. Engaging in filmmaking, often a new endeavor for many, pushes them out of their comfort zones, promoting growth and adaptability.
