The Explorer Program focuses on building literacy and math skills to further support academic success. This program provides an opportunity for children to reinforce and build on their current literacy and math skills using an engaging, hands-on approach. The majority of instruction is focused on Language Arts/Reading/Literacy skills, with a small portion of time devoted to building basic math skills. Students are recommended by their teacher to participate in this program.
