Lower Enrichment Courses
Enrichment offerings include music, art, Spanish, technology, library, and physical education. Interscholastic sports are an integral part of the third and fourth grades and full participation is encouraged.
At Creative Learning Academy nurturing creative problem solving and self-directed learning is a priority. As we prepare CLA students for the 21st century, we want to provide every child with the opportunity to create, engineer, and design. We believe that this kind of thinking is critical as our learners prepare for high school, college, and beyond.
With this in mind, our LaunchPad is a place for wonder, curiosity, questioning, exploring, failing, and succeeding. It is space where students work on design challenges and learn to develop critical-thinking skills.
Our Lower School students are given a quarterly challenge based on a common theme. Using inquiry-based learning and the design-thinking approach, students design, build, and share original projects with an authentic audience.
