Course Offerings & Progressive Curriculum


Classes generally meet once a week and run continually throughout the academic year organized by terms running approximately 12 weeks in length. Our curriculum and projects are designed to present a progressing level of skill and challenge so that students can gain the most out of our program. Our small class size and individualized instruction allows you to join at any time. Students are expected to stay in each level for four semesters, which is one calendar year.
