Digital Advanced Learning

More Than SAT’s Digital Advanced Learning program, developed through the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s Innovation Lab, blends our individualized academic coaching with state-of-the-art learning technology. We currently use Redbird (digital education developed by Stanford University) that automatically adapts to each student’s unique needs, whether to catch up or move ahead. Our coaches provide a personal touch as they guide students to set and achieve their academic goals—as well as develop essential learning habits and a winning attitude to reach their highest potential.  

Write On

Designed to lower barriers and fears to writing, students are encouraged and guided to “bring out” their inner writer. They will literally write on and on without fear of deadlines and grades. Students gain confidence and skills by interacting with an experienced writing teacher and with each other through a fun and creative process! They especially enjoy presenting their works in class and seeing them published online to share with family and friends. (Students will need a laptop, Chromebook, or iPad with a keyboard and Google Doc capabilities.)

Study Skills

Professionals go through training to excel in their field. But why are most students never taught the tools of learning and studying? A person with consistent, thoughtful study skills and learning habits will eventually do better than someone who is “just smart,” especially as school subjects become increasingly difficult. It’s not enough to merely “try harder” (which is why most diet plans fail), but a student must also study and learn smarter, more effectively. This course allows our students to make the most of their limited time and energy during the school year. We will teach students how to learn on their own and equip them with skills that empower them to become lifelong, independent learners.

Coding (Elective M/W)

We believe that in the 21st century, coding is a foundational skill, just like reading and writing. That’s why we say: Read, Write, Code. This new coding program will provide a fun environment where any student can begin learning or further develop this skill. We will have individualized instruction based on the student’s level of experience with coding. Student will have an option to continue this class after the summer.

Debate (Elective T/Th)

If your children often try to win you over with reason, then they would enjoy this class. Here, arguing is actually a good thing. Let them use that skill in a positive, structured setting! Students will learn the basics of debate and get a taste of the different roles on a debate team. Whether or not students want to join their school’s debate team, this is an opportunity for them to grow in verbal confidence and articulation skills. Middle School Only.

Art (Elective M/W)

Art is deservedly becoming recognized as a necessary part of high school and college education. The “A” in the STEAM curriculum (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) is just as essential as the other parts of the acronym that “academic heads” tend to emphasize. In this class, students will explore many different forms of expression, from traditional media (drawing, painting, sculpting, or mixed) to digital arts. Individual students could also work on supplementing their portfolio depending on their skill levels. There will be a small, additional cost for materials used in this class.

Science Buddy (Elective T/Th)

Whether your student is a science fair novice or a budding scientist, we have multiple levels of projects your student can launch and develop with the guidance of a science teacher. Students will choose their own science experiment according to their academic and experience level. They can grow a simple project into complex scientific research that could eventually make it into the highest level high school science competitions, such as the Intel Science Talent Search or the Google Science Fair. At the very least, after this class, you won’t need to worry about what to do for the upcoming school year’s science fair!

Hip-Hop Dance (Elective T/Th)

Let’s shut up, dance, and let our bodies do the talking and storytelling! In partnership with Korean Cultural Center, students will learn how to express themselves, their passions and stories through creative movement. They’ll learn fun dance moves while gaining the benefits of exercise!

Mandarin 1 (Elective M/W, T/Th)

Mandarin is fast becoming an important world language. This elective course will help students approach through conversations an often-intimidating language in a fun way. Whether a student wants to take Mandarin in high school as a foreign language or wants to explore the joy of learning a new language and its culture, this class will be a fun way to gain a good foundation.

Mandarin 2 (Elective M/W, T/Th)

This class will be for those who have a basic understanding of Mandarin language and want to be prepared for high school class in the future. In addition to conversation skills based on real-life experience, students will practice enhancing their reading and writing skills.
