EXPLORE THE WORLD!
August 26th, 2019 - June 25th, 2020
At Afterschool Adventures, we travel the globe through an interdisciplinary study of countries and cultures around the world. Through in-depth examination and hands-on experiences, we cultivate young minds to view themselves as an integral part of the continued growth of our global community. As part of this experience, our students relate back to their own culture and heritage to discover what makes them a unique global citizen.
