ACCESS Education Program (10-13 years)

The ACCESS Education Program (All Children Can Excel and Succeed with Support) provides more than 250 hours of after-school and school-break experiential learning and social development programming to children between 10-13 years old.

Primary school Achievers in grades five, six and seven “learn by doing” to build critical social-emotional learning and essential life skills. They learn to work as productive members of a team, respect gender differences, improve personal decision-making and start taking steps towards living healthier lives. As Achievers learn new skills and build productive relationships with peers and adults, they begin developing confidence in themselves and their capacity to thrive in the classroom and the community.

Throughout the course of the year during after-school enrichment programs and experiential school-break camps, Achievers focus on:

  • Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Setting and achieving personal goals, making productive decisions, building healthy relationships, overcoming challenges.
  • 21st Century Skills. 4Cs of critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity.
  • Project-based learning. STEM, computer literacy, art projects, drama, financial literacy, public speaking.
  • Healthy living. Personal health, mental and physical well-being.
  • Academic support. Subject tutoring, homework help, peer-to-peer advising, English language reading and writing.
  • Play. Unstructured recreation, educational games, sports and physical fitness.
