The Academy: Academic & Enrichment Blend 2nd-11th
Proverbs 9:10 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
In addition to our Enrichment+ program, we offer a blend of Academic and Enrichment classes for our 2nd-11th graders. These unique, Christ-centered courses are designed to help students discover their gifts, develop a vision for their life and train them how to defend their faith. Our project-based, cross-curricular, multi-genre approach helps students to gain a well-rounded education that not only prepares them for college but for life. These interesting and fun-packed classes offer students the opportunity for hands-on learning and real-world application. Here at The Well, we don't just teach classes, we Engage, Equip & Inspire the leaders of tomorrow!
