Science activities made fun!  We will blow up volcanoes, watch planets move, play with electric circuits, make edible creations and do all sorts of other fun things.  This is NOT your normal science class!

Jubilee Academy announces summer care program

74497___gustavorezende___Kids_6_03By Heather Peavler, Jubilee Academy Director

Jubilee Academy will host a summer program that provides full and part-time learning opportunities for school-age students. The program will have an academic component to guard against regression of skills, but will also provide indoor and outdoor play and exploration opportunities that rising first through eighth graders need over the summer months. The program will operate 9-3 Monday-Friday, with options for before and after school care. Students may arrive at 8:30 a.m. and stay until 5 p.m. if needed, for an additional charge. Students may attend between two and five days weekly.

On a typical day, students will study the Bible, read books and materials of their choosing, free write, study grammar, work on sight words, spend time memorizing math facts, play educational games, observe nature, do some chores, and have plenty of time to play and interact with other students. The academics will be low-pressure, but will be designed to keep kids from losing what they learned during the previous year.

Students may participate in the summer care program, even if they don’t attend Jubilee during the year. The program will run June 2-August 22.

The program costs $500/month for full-time participants. Part-time participants pay $30/day. Before-school care is an additional $5/day, and after-school care is $5/hour. Deposit is $150/first child, and $75/each additional sibling.
