We will teach them stationary ball handling drills to get them more comfortable with the ball, how to properly hold and shoot a basketball, and play small sided games to start re-enforcing our skills. The classes are taught in a non-competitive environment where the focus is learning, having fun, and becoming better athletes.

The Coding Space is an after school enrichment program where students learn to tackle challenges independently through learning to code. In our classrooms, students learn entirely through creating projects, allowing them to work on their critical thinking and problem solving skills while simultaneously picking up the hard skills of coding. By challenging students at their individual level to create projects as unique as they are, we underscore the power of personalized learning. And with our small student-to-teacher ratio and Socratic-based teaching methods, students get the guidance they need to keep moving forward while developing their inner critical voice.
