The Regular Academic Program cultivates students' Math and English skills and helps maintain practical skills that are useful for school.

Reading with Vocabulary (MONDAY):
The objective of the class is to prepare students for what they are going to learn in school by enriching their knowledge of vocabulary and reading skills. Every class starts off with a vocabulary quiz, and students work on passages that use the vocabulary in each unit.

School Math Concept (TUESDAY):
Students will learn basic math concepts and preview material that they will learn in school. After learning a concept, they will have practice questions to review those skills.

Book Reading & Writing with Grammar (WEDNESDAY):
Constant reading improves students' reading comprehension and develops good reading habits. The class includes reading at least one book per week, taking a reading quiz, and writing a book report. Students are first given a reading diagnostic test to determine their reading level. According to the reading level, students will receive a list of books that will enhance their reading and comprehension skills.

Creative Writing

All too often, children are put off by Creative Writing by feeling they have to do it right.  Best Academy's Creative Writing class challenges students to think critically and creatively. We want to help students enjoy writing their own stories while teaching important writing skills.  Many institutions, including TJHSS, look for candidates who can skillfully express and translate their thoughts into words. Taught by one of Best Academy‚Äôs top English teachers, Miss  Elizabeth Menard, this creative writing class will absolutely change your student's perspective of writing!
