5-8 AFTER SCHOOL
JOHN'S SCHEDULE – 5TH GRADE (4 DAYS A WEEK PLAN)
JULIE'S SCHEDULE – 7TH GRADE (5 DAYS A WEEK PLAN)
Students in 5-8th grade have very different needs. At this age, we primarily focus on HW understanding, study skills, private tutoring, and leadership skills. We also support students in their goals to take their extra-curricular activities to a more competitive level by offering advanced basketball leagues, advanced private music teaching, and transportation to off-campus programs.
Middle School Homework Support and Private Tutoring
Students will have a quiet place to study, with teachers available who have a college-level understanding of advanced mathematics, sciences, and language studies. Junior High students already have a lot of HW, so we encourage private tutoring rather than additional academic classes for your child to get ahead. Private tutoring is encouraged 2-3 times a week (30 minutes) at a discounted membership rate of $15/session. Tutoring is currently available for math, Chinese, Japanese, science, and English. Private tutors also closely monitor student grades and study skills.
Cafe Study (Mastering Independent Study Skills)
Middle schoolers are beginning to enjoy independence. Rather than staying at home after school “unsupervised,” Lyceum Village embraces this desire for independence and creates an environment where, if they maintain high grades and show responsibility, they will be given the option of our guided, “block-free” scheduling. These members create their own after school plan according to student and parent priorities. These might include: Academic Tutoring, Homework support, Cafe Study, Science Fair, music competition prep, PSAT, and even schedule in transportation to high-level school extracurricular events. This is the perfect time and opportunity for mastering Independent Study Skills that is absolutely necessary for success in high school!
Advanced basketball practice occurs 6-8pm twice a week.
Private lessons are available in piano, cello, violin, voice, and clarinet. Middle school students can stay later in the evening to finish their practice. Music teachers are always on the premises if they have questions.
Lyceum Village After School program serves members from kindergarten to 8th grade. This allows the middle school students an opportunity to become role models and leaders for the younger grades in our program! Taking leadership roles involves public speaking, event organizing, and realizing their responsibility to model following directions by the Foundation Staff. We encourage each middle school student to choose from the following roles:
Wednesdays Club Leader
#FUN Friday Leader
Show & Play Leader
Event Leader- We have around 2-3 events each semester. Haunted House. Christmas Show. Spring Show.
New Student Buddy
Start a Group on campus – Girls Scouts League, Robotics Club, etc.
Transportation to Off-Campus Activities
Many 5-8th graders are involved in off-campus activities. Foundation staff can arrange transportation to these activities for an additional fee (5 mile radius maximum).
