We have several programs. Please select the program overview that interests you below to learn more.
Kindergarten - 6th Grade Elementary Program
We have both full and part time programs. Please click here for details about the tuition schedule, and other information. We believe that at the center of the school’s educational model, there need to be the five core subjects. They need to be deep and robust, and that the knowledge being learned in those cores needs to be generalized through cross-disciplinary projects in order to achieve mastery. In order to provide a well-rounded education, we integrate the the arts and physical activity into the program. The social emotional curriculum has its own track, and in addition it is sprinkled throughout the school day.
We teach many of our courses in a multi-age environment. In order to teach every child at their academic level, the children travel to the just right level class of mathematics and reading, and sometimes in other courses, instead of exclusively being with their age peers. This is dependent on the child's readiness; the teacher will differentiate in the classroom if the child is negatively affected by the transition. We believe that there is a specific, just right zone of challenge that we want to achieve with each student. Click on each link to read more (Links added daily).
Social and Emotional
Strategy and Innovation
Middle and High School Lite
MAGE Middle and High School Lite is a homeschool+ management program. The purpose of the program is to provide a curated, structured (set at family level based on a common agreement) and supervised independent study environment that provides social engagement throughout the day. The reason we created this program is because we understand that there is a need in the gifted community for a small, individualized, extremely advanced, yet safe and nurturing environment where middle and high school students could complete their studies.
We will be running at least one week of camp in the summer of 2019.
June 24-29 Ages 8-12 Camp Half Blood: a Percy Jackson Fan Fiction Day-Camp. Calling all Demigods! In this Rick Riordan - inspired fan fiction writing camp, students will create, edit, and discuss their manuscripts and or act out scenes and skits. The end product could be a short story, poem, graphic novel, comic strip, or novella and so on. This camp is for students who are voracious readers and writers and fans of the Olympians Series and have read all of the series prior to camp. There will be a chance to have deep discussions around this area of interest with like-minded peers in a fun camp environment and to start friendships based on similar interests. Campers will also enjoy an off-site field trip, science and art activities, and camp games. Camp ends in a showcase and pizza party.
August: TBD : Ages 5-8 Poop Day-Camp. Learn all about poop and other gross stuff in this silly science and history camp. There will be a chance to laugh and make friends with intellectual peers in a fun camp environment. Campers will also enjoy an off-site field trip, science activities, arts and crafts, and camp games. Camp ends in a showcase and pizza party.
August: TBD : Ages 6-12 Radioactive Chicago Day-Camp. Campers will learn about various forms of energy, about measuring radiation, and even the atomic bomb. There will be a chance to laugh and make friends with intellectual peers in a fun camp environment. Campers will also enjoy an off-site field trip, science activities, arts and crafts, and camp games. Camp ends in a showcase and pizza party.

Free Elementary Math Circle Grades 1-4
Our Free Elementary Math Circle is not a selective enrollment program - it is open enrollment for all. An elementary math circle allows children to experience the beauty and creativity of mathematics in a non-traditional setting. Students engage in games, projects and discussions, with an advanced mathematician as their guide. The problems selected require very little mathematical knowledge to participate, but at the same time can challenge even sophisticated students or even math professors. Math circles increase mathematical literacy, confidence, resilience, collaboration and communication, skills that are critical in a STEAM field. We are currently running a monthly day-time circle that can be found on our event page and are working on a location for a PM and weekend offering. Email admissions or fill out a contact sheet with your interest. Please send age, grade equivalent if different, and your preference: 9AM second Monday of the month, 6:30PM third Thursday of the month, or 1:30 PM Second Saturday of the Month. Program runs October-June.
