Our foundational program called the H.I.V.E. (Homeschool Initiative for Vocational Education) will help students succeed in a global economy through exposure to the arts and career-oriented exploration.
Students will meet in classrooms, for two-day-a-week program, that includes core academic subjects in Math, Language Arts, History, and Science. These classes are enriched with "Arts Teach" integration within each subject. In addition, the electives are geared towards careers, skill sets, and the exploration of industry clusters. We include Junior Achievement curriculum along with these electives.
Examples of electives offered for the industry clusters include:
- Visual Arts - various mediums
- Urban Workshop
- Fashion Design/Sewing
- Cosmetology - including theater make-up
- Building Trades - including woodworking for age appropriate levels
- Drama - Fall (Commedia dell 'arte) Spring - Shakespeare theater
These hands-on experiences are part of broad-based learning that provides context, direction and purpose to enhance and reinforce a variety of the academic subjects and curriculums being used.
