Learning In and Outside the Classroom
Here at Portsmouth Christian Academy, we emphasize education of the whole child, which takes place well beyond the walls of the classroom. We know that, in addition to education, creativity must be fostered, and this occurs in a variety of settings – on a stage or on a playing field, with an instrument or with a paintbrush, independently or collaboratively. As we strive to fulfill our school’s mission to teach and encourage each student to maximize their God-given intellectual, artistic, physical, and spiritual potential, we find it imperative to offer a variety of enrichment opportunities designed to help your child discover new interests and skills, or further develop existing ones.
The conclusion of the formal school day is the perfect time for your child to leave the classroom and join other students in a themed workshop to discover new interests or develop existing skills! Our afterschool Kaleidoscope program, allows our PreK-through-8th grade students to explore a variety of extracurricular options each quarter. We offer a variety of workshops each quarter that range from mentally stimulating STEM opportunities to competitive dodgeball workshops. Students are encouraged to try new ones each quarter! allowing them to take on new and exciting things in areas of their choosing including athletics, drama, robotics, LEGO Builders, Coyote Club, cross-country skiing, and more!
Sample Kaleidoscope Workshop Offerings Include:
Private Music Lessons
