Enrichment opportunities at Prestonwood Christian Academy are designed to enhance the vertically-aligned curriculum through the addition of innovative learning experiences which extend beyond the classroom.
High Touch, High Tech (HTHT) is a hands-on, interactive, in-school science experience. Prestonwood Christian Academy teachers work with HTHT scientists to deliver high-quality, engaging science programs lasting around ninety minutes in the classrooms. Through inquiry lessons and hands-on experiments and content-based dialogue, students are exposed to curriculum-based content. The best part of HTHT for students is being involved in the process and they always get to take something home!
Reading Buddies is a Lower School program developed to promote the love of reading and mentoring. An older class is matched up with students in a younger class, and they meet monthly throughout the school year. The older students read aloud to the younger students providing a good role model as well as developing a lasting friendship. This becomes a valuable and enjoyable experience for all.
