IDEA Summer Youth - Tahlequah

Summer Academy. The RACE program has changed its name to IDEA (Innovation Discovery Education Academy but everything else remains the same. We are happy to offer our quality Summer Youth Programs again, as well as a new Youth Leadership Academy. Please select the campus you wish to attend and select the program that is right for your child.

Tahlequah
The Tahlequah campus is offering Makey Takey programs for all five weeks of our children and youth academy. Instead of selecting just one theme a week, children will come each day and select the task they wish to complete that day. They will take charge of their own learning by deciding what they are interested in on a day to day basis. Activities and classes will also vary from week to week. What are the exceptions? Our 4-5-year-old class will ONLY be offered a variety of themes within their age group and will not co-mingle with older children. The other exception is our MineCraft class. Your child may sign up for JUST MineCraft. Note: we will not exclude children from the other classes from MineCraft.
