High Fives! is a transitional class that allows children to be better prepared to enter kindergarten. Parents who may have maturational, social, or academic concerns believe this year greatly benefits their children. This class targets children who miss the September 1 cut-off date, but who will turn five years old by December 31.
- Time: High Fives! is a daily class, meeting from 8:30 – 1:30 p.m., and follows the Academy’s school calendar.
- Academic excellence: The curriculum attends to state standards of the PA Department of Education, with core material that readies students for kindergarten. The curriculum is teacher-written with more intensive instruction in social studies, science, handwriting, reading, and math.
- Biblical values: Bible stories and their life applications, scripture memory work, faith-focused ‘projects’ and music comprise a significant portion of each day.
