On Saturdays, we offer school for children between 5 to 9 years of age. Our experienced teachers offer the following classes: Russian and Literature, individual Music lessons, Choir lessons, Art, and Speech Therapy. After class, homework is assigned for the following week.
For our younger students, classes are conducted in a fun and understandable way through the use of visual models, fairy tale characters, and various surprises.
All materials covered in Russian class, Literature, and Mathematics teach children grammar, reading, history of Russian literature, develop phonetic hearing, proper speech, aid grasping counting skills, develop logical and abstract thinking, and form the foundation for the love of learning.
When attending lessons for Russian literature, children are introduced with works of famous poets and authors, folk art (tongue twisters, proverbs and sayings, puzzles, and idioms). They are also taught how to speak fluently, properly, and to be able to use a broad vocabulary. Students learn how to think and reason logically, create themed stories based on related images, retell what they read, to fantasize, and to come up with continuations for fairy tales. They also learn how to read words, sentences, and full passages clearly and with proper enunciation.
In math class, children learn arithmetic and geometry, as well as solve logic problems.
The main goal of this educational program is to not only provide our students with a well-rounded foundation that will prepare them for and ensure their success in school, but to also teach them to think, analyze, and draw conclusions from what they study in the future. We also aim to instill the love for school, exploration, and problem solving, as well as pride in academic achievements and personal projects in the children.
For enrollment in Saturday school, please fill out the registration form and bring it in on the first day of school.

**Starting in 2011-2012, we are starting to operate based on the testing system of the «Gifted program» in order to better prepare children for taking exams. Homework will be given to solidify the concepts learned in class. If your child successfully tests into our program, you will receive a $100 certificate that can be used towards any programs offered at our Academy.
Children love to learn from teachers who are passionate about their subjects, and who can ignite that passion in their students. However, only with the involvement and support of parents can our program successfully create a happy, modern learning environment! Here is an article published in the Russian newspaper «Perspektiva» on October of 2011 about our Saturday school.
