Your seventh grader may be feeling the need to explore limits and express their own opinions. For many children, this is a time for questioning authority, challenging conventions, and asserting independence. We meet seventh graders where they are in development by applying discovery learning principles.
Our curriculum works across all subjects to echo the energy of your seventh grader, including a deep dive into another time of remarkable discovery- the Renaissance. The explosion of creativity and knowledge during this time in history provides an elegant parallel to your child’s experience of adolescence.
