ST. JUDE READ-A-THON

Our mission is to devise a concrete foundation for pre-k children of the community through a new learning experience of creative learning and the art of music.
Higher Learning Enrichment Academy is a Three Star Family Day Home which has successfully been in operation for twenty-one years. Our mission shall create leadership skills, morals, and expansive knowledge to be instilled and applied throughout the students' lives. The HLEA curriculum is designed for preschool students ages three to five years old. It has a mixture of the A Beka curriculum, common core learning strategies, and musical elements to assist with retaining knowledge. It is inclusive of
language arts, reading, spelling, math, history, science, Spanish, and health. Also, the students are introduced to class piano and rhythm skills (drums). The curriculum is creatively designed to internalize academics, leadership skills, and social skills.
In addition, the students display their knowledge learned in productions throughout the community. The students have performed to audiences on the state and local levels. The community has been a very essential component to the success of the program. HLEA views the community as building blocks in applying academics to experience. These building blocks consist of the education system, public officials, law enforcement, and etc. Therefore, instilling a strong academic foundation for preschool students, leads to a solid, concrete foundation for the other building blocks to rest upon and a future engulfed with well, rounded citizens.
