What is Academic Enrichment?
Academic enrichment in out-of-school settings is a powerful way to support students’ learning in a way that is fun and engaging. Enrichment creates a space and an environment in which kids feel safe expressing themselves. Students are invited to expand their thinking and share their ideas, which in turn builds their confidence and success. Help kids connect with their “in-school” day without out-of-school time being more of the same.
Leaders use powerful literature and related activities to increase children’s enjoyment of reading, build their vocabulary, deepen their thinking, and foster their ability to work with others.

This collection of creative, hands-on mathematics games and activities are designed to engage young people in standards-based mathematics learning.
Children explore everyday scientific concepts and natural phenomena using ordinary materials. Lessons support what students discover with explanations and provide inspiration for further exploration.
