What kind of classes are taught?
We teach extra-curricular classes, also known as electives, throughout the day. We also offer an optional math and language arts program, in a small group setting, twice a day that we refer to as Self-Paced Learning (SPL), see below.
Classes to be offered the first 9 weeks (subject to change every 9 weeks):
AM: Drama, P.E., and Geography
PM: Art, Outdoor Games and Architecture
AM: Lego Engineering, P.E., and Cultural Studies
PM: Music, Outdoor Games, and Dinosaur Unit Study
MATH AND LANGUAGE ARTS
My Village offers a hybrid approach to learning in both extra curricular classes and core classes like math and language arts. Our extra curricular classes have multi-aged groups to encourage leadership and develop higher level thinking. Our core classes (math & language arts) are taught through an online platform, in a small group setting, facilitated by a certified teacher. This allows each student to work through content at their own level. We refer to this as Self-Paced Learning (SPL).
This optional program is available only to students that attend both Tuesday and Thursday. It occurs during the regular school day. Parents can choose which 2 extra curricular classes, per day, their child will miss in order to take advantage of this program. There is one certified teacher per 3-5 children. She monitors and tutors students in areas of need, discusses goals for learning and challenges their thinking beyond the online platform. There is an additional $85 per month fee for this service.
The online curriculum includes dozens of classes to choose from besides the math and language arts classes that My Village monitors for your child. Each student can register for up to 4 additional classes at no charge, however, we do not monitor them. An online class is provided to parents on how to utilize the platform, then they are registered as monitors on the account to see their child's progress in all subject areas they are registered for.
To sign-up for SPL, simply check the appropriate box on the Registration Form. We will then send you an email with instructions.
Middle School Academic Support
This program focuses on Core Classes (Math, Language Arts and Writing). Students attend four SPL classes a day instead of the usual two. The mornings are spent on Language Arts and Writing and the afternoons are spent solely on math. Students have "brain breaks" in between their classes. Outside time, board games and other various activities allow students to move around and prepare to focus on their core classes again. This program includes membership to the online Acellus curriculum and can be used at home as well.
Tuesday and Thursday required - 11 to 13 year olds
Fee is $295 a month for full days and $150 a month for 1/2 days (only if available). For example, if your student only needs tutoring in math, he or she can attend only afternoons, but must be both Tuesday and Thursday.
Class is limited to 5 students ages 11-13 years old. Due to limited availability, no sibling discounts for this program.
