This phase of Junior Scholars’ development and growth requires hands on projects within the day so that learning and fun can be woven into each class. Master teachers plan class topics that stem from their own talents and passion. The difference is shown in exceptional classroom management, creative engagement, and unique problem-solving with students self-directing much of their achievements. Morning AND afternoon class choices are now available!

MFS reserves the right to change class times based on scheduling conflicts, and may cancel courses due to insufficient enrollment. In such cases as the latter, full refunds will be granted.
