Project A Classes

For students entering 5th-8th grade in 2024-25
100% Asynchronous, but students move through the class week by week.
Cost: $125 for 4 weeks of programming

In a Project Academy four week mission, students are project managers in charge of selecting, planning, revising and reflecting upon their plan of work. In week one, students jump into action selecting a problem from a range of inquiry options. Once selected, students make a plan of work, join an interest group, and add to the class-wide discussion about overarching issues. After four weeks of researching their problem and crafting a product, students use group and instructor feedback to prepare their final project. Throughout the experience, instructors provide regular, personalized feedback focused on documenting growth.
