Early Childhood Programming

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularized in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. 

 

Middle School Programming

Our mission in middle school is to provide our girls with a rigorous and well-rounded education.  Scholars receive 70 minutes of Common Core aligned ELA and math daily, as well as challenging Social Studies and Science courses each week that utilize technology and hands-on experiences and Spanish language.  In addition, scholars have the opportunity for physical movement every day through either Physical Education or Dance class, and opportunities for creative outlets through either visual arts or music courses.  All math and ELA teachers work with small groups of students to help support and push students in their learning.  Excel also offers opportunities for character development, and life skills work through our weekly sister circles, and 8th grade has the opportunity to delve deeply into high school preparation every week.
