Project Based Learning

 Throughout Achieve Summer, each class works on a project together to demonstrate their knowledge and skills by creating a public product or presentation for a real audience the last day of programming. In PBL, students develop a deep context knowledge as well as critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication skills.

Social Emotional Learning

Through direct Social Emotional Learning (SEL) instruction, students acquire and apply the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to develop healthy identities, manage emotions, achieve personal and collective goals, feel and show empathy, establish and maintain supportive relationships, and make responsible and caring decisions.

Field Trips & Events

Elementary and high school students get to experience Miami-Dade favorites like Fairchild Tropical Botanic Gardens, Frost Museum of Science, Zoo Miami, and others. High School students get to enjoy their Best Look Forward event at Aventura Mall.
