THE ELEMENTARY STUDIO
Eagles (typically ages 8-11)
The Elementary Studio provides the first environment where students work both independently on self-paced Core Skills acquisition and collaboratively on developing community covenants and participating in real world projects.
All studio schedules are similar in that the day is broken into independent work cycles, collaborative work or play cycles, free time, and community building activities.
