Student Actvities

Study related activities

Reading books, playing chase, doing art.....

It is difficult to describe a typical day because no day is like any other. On any given day students may be involved in many different types of activities: reading a book, playing chase outside, taking an online class, completed one-on-one individualized tutoring, doing an art project, talking with other students and staff, flying a drone, playing a musical instrument, creating a business, going on field trips, playing games, building with blocks or completing math enrichment lessons.

A wide variety of children flourish at  Great Lakes International Academy. The physically active child can move freely. Academically gifted and creative children can delve into their interests as deeply as they wish. The verbal or social child can befriend and converse with people of all ages. The quiet child can join in at her own pace. The individualistic child can be respected for who he is.
