YOUNG LEARNER'S CENTERA GENTLE ONLINE LEARNING EXPERIENCE
We have developed engaging, fun, and meaningful courses with the needs of primary students in grades 4th-6th and their families in mind. Our courses are:
Young learners don’t want to be left out. They will enjoy attending class with a dynamic instructor for 75 minutes per session, once a week for 15 weeks. Your teacher will actively promote social connections through at least 15 minutes per session of sharing and community time with other classmates. Our small class sizes will keep class time fun, meaningful, and yet highly interactive.
We’ve designed these offerings for young learners with limited attention spans and budding minds. We want them focused on growing a firm foundation that harnesses natural curiosity and interest and allows them to have a measure of accountability. These offerings are cultivated with an eye to helping your student gain valuable experience in the digital world with an eye toward responsible use of technology as he grows older.
Isn’t there enough to stress about in life? We don’t want to add to it. For this reason, each week the teacher will provide a suggested schedule of work for the student to work on away from class. There are no graded or timed assignments. Parents may do as much or as little as they wish to do with their child during the week. If a student misses class, there is no problem as you may watch a recording of the class at your convenience.
Our courses are taught by mature Christians whom the Lord has called to minister through education. Excelsior Classes teachers understand the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and they will teach all content from a Christian worldview.
All classes are $149 per class.

The requirements for a young learner would be the same as for any Excelsior Classes student (aside from a strong internet broadband connection): a computer with a camera and a microphone. If the student wants to use a headset microphone, this may allow better concentration; however, if the parents wishes to hear the class, a headset microphone is not necessary. We advise that a parent or older sibling with a measure of keyboarding skills sit with or near your pupil for the first several classes to see what works best for your student. Your student may need a few small assists navigating the technology. Parents need not fear, however, because your student may already operate your smart phone better than you do!
