Instructors teach the core subjects using active learning in a workshop format. Students will explore Early Modern History, focusing on a time period of history based on the Story of the World Series by Susan Wise Bauer, along with Cultural Dance and Movement from that period, and Language Arts are explored through Music Composition. All classes are designed to strengthen each student’s understanding and abilities in both artistic and academic subjects.
Junior Achievement concepts are inclusive throughout their coursework. Students learn about: the roles people play in the local economy, basic economic skills, career options, and the importance of basic math skills.

This section will help students comprehend the the socioeconomic structure of the United Kingdom during the Elizabethan Era. Students will also learn that the Elizabethan courts were strongly influenced by the Italian, Spanish, and French court traditions.
