K-12 After School Program
We here at Genius Kids, want to give the best possible opportunities to students of any age and any skill level! We encourage your scholar to take our online classes to provide these opportunities and help kids across the nation! We offer classes in Abacus, Science, English/Language Arts, Handwriting and Math. Class placement is based on a placement test. This placement test is required on the first day of classes and is the best way to assess what skill level your child is currently at. By placing kids in the correct classes we can ensure that students needs are met on an individual basis so that we can pinpoint the exact spot that your children are at in their academic journey. Classes are available for students of all skillsets and ages.
Ideas are best implemented where they are best communicated. Literature has become the forefront for understanding different cultures, ideas, and emotions. Verbal and written communication skills are the foundation for how young minds express themselves. When applying to esteemed secondary schools, colleges always ask for a written essay portion. By understanding the fundamentals of how text is structured, students can create the groundwork for how ideas are expressed cohesively. By learning language arts, students improve their reading comprehension, vocabulary, and critical thinking abilities. They develop the ability to understand and interpret various forms of literature, including stories, poems, and plays.
Our courses are guided in helping students reach their desired reading and writing levels. Whether it is teaching students how to write their first sentences or create their first cover letter; the Genius Kids Academy will personalize a learning plan that best fits your student’s needs.
In today's digital era, where typing has become the norm, handwriting may seem less important. However, teaching and valuing handwriting is crucial, precisely because it offers numerous benefits beyond its core concept. Research shows that handwritten notes improve memory and retention. In studies conducted by Science News for Students. participants who wrote notes by hand outperformed those who typed when it came to retaining information across all age groups. By engaging in the physical act of writing, individuals undertake a more active process that integrates both cognitive and motor skills. The act of forming letters and words on paper enhances the encoding and consolidation of information, leading to improved memory retention. Moreover, when writing by hand, learners are compelled to actively process and summarize the material, selecting key points and organizing their thoughts. This process deepens understanding and contributes to better comprehension and recall. Additionally, the personal touch of handwritten notes enhances memory by creating a meaningful learning experience. Despite the digital shift, the unique advantages of handwriting make it a valuable skill to teach and practice.
Through our handwriting courses, students will learn to effectively be able to write their ideas in a way that’s both accelerated and legible. By learning the basic concepts of letter shape and calligraphy, students will be able to structure their thinking and improve retention in other subjects as well.
Mathematics goes beyond mere numbers and formulas, it fosters critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are applicable to various aspects of life.

It plays a pivotal role in their cognitive development, promoting disciplined and structured thinking. By embracing math early on, students build a strong foundation for future success, both academically and in their personal pursuits.
