At Grasshopper we empower kids through life tools. Each of our classes are specifically designed to teach skills that will give our students amazing opportunities as they grow through childhood and into contributing and successful adults.
Classes generally meet once per week for 1 or 1-1/2 hour sessions for 6-8 weeks. Classes are tailored to specific age groups and curriculum adjusted based on class dynamics. Class sizes range from 12 – 18 students providing optimal instruction and learning opportunities. Although classes below are arranged by a specific life skill, each touches on a variety of tools from speaking to inquiry.
We recently added a new speaking and leadership series which spans an entire school year… Spark, Ignite, and Power Up! Check it out!
