Elective Program

Literature

3rd Grade to 5th Grade

 

Our goal for this class is to teach the magnificence of literature in all its forms. Throughout the year books of varying genres are chosen to excite your child’s interest in reading. Lively discussions which clarify the main themes and uncover plots also identify different personality traits of characters. Through these discussions the students learn how to incorporate what they read with their understanding of life, culture and morality.

Public Speaking

Kindergarten to 8th Grade

 

Did you know the number one fear among adults is public speaking? We can help your child conquer that fear! The ability to competently speak in front of others is an important trait needed in the classroom, in the workplace, and in social arenas. Your student will learn to be more comfortable in front of an audience, speak with expression and clarity, and prepare for a performance.

Genius Innovation Lab

1st Grade to 5th Grade

 

Teaching Garage is the creator of the first and only digital STEM curriculum for elementary schools for several fields of engineering ranging from software to civil to agricultural. Our goal is to inspire all students to see themselves as future leaders in engineering, software, and technology industries. Through project-based learning, students will design and create projects to solve real-world problems.

Games Around the World

Kindergarten to 8th Grade

 

Tired of your kids begging for the iPad? Students will put on their thinking caps and explore games from around the world such as Stratego, chess, and other popular board games. This is a great opportunity to promote friendly competition and improve critical thinking skills.

Journalism Club (Six Weeks)

4th Grade to 8th Grade

 

At Genius Academy, our Journalism Club is a perfect blend of educational learning and fun! Our team of Editors-in-Chief guides students as they write about topics of interest, illustrate their articles, and help design the final newsletter. It is then published for parents and peers to read— a proud accomplishment for all of the club members!
