2023 - 2024 Course Schedule

Weekend classes at HEROES Academy meet for 36 weeks.  Weekend classes will begin on September 9th and 10th.

 

 

Gifted and talented students have unique learning needs; they are ready to move through material at a faster pace than their same-age peers and often see deeper connections between ideas. At HEROES, we recognize this, and we’ve created a program designed specifically to meet the needs of your gifted and talented child. We cover 1.5 to 2 years of material in a once-per-week 2-hour class. Most gifted and talented programs are enrichment focused, but enrichment programs allow students to explore other topics; they do not satiate the need to learn — to go beyond the standard curriculum. At HEROES, we meet the academic needs of your gifted child. By advancing your child’s math, language arts, and science skills and knowledge, your child has more opportunities, learns to overcome new challenges, and learns to love learning itself.

 

Our math classes cover all of the NJ State Learning Standards, Because our students are able to move through material at a faster pace, we use this as an opportunity to explore other topics not in the standard curriculum too. We also put an added emphasis on real-world problem solving skills, using real data and word problems based on real life.

 

 

Our language arts classes focus on teaching grammar and writing skills not typically seen in a standard public or private school curriculum. We help students develop an in-depth understanding of language itself, focusing on the logic of the English Language. We also introduce Greek and Latin roots from the elementary grades, providing students with the language skills to easily acquire subject specific vocabulary in the future. Students become strong writers; they develop skills in persuasive writing, informational writing, narrative writing, technical writing, and more.

Optional Virtual Summer

You may choose to add-on the virtual summer homework package.  The Virtual Summer Homework Package includes 8 weeks of summer homework with grading.  Students will receive weekly summer packages through our online course platform.  Students will receive a total of eight weekly packets.  Staff will grade two times per week for a total of 16 grading days, allowing students some flexibility in due dates.
