 Benefits


Fine Arts  
S
elf expression and personal creativity promote high self-esteem and a new found confidence. Our dance program offers beneficial health results, as it is a form of exercise. Children will also gain social and public speaking skills, foundational tools that can be used for the rest of their lives.

 

 

According to Champions of Change,  The Impact of the Arts on Learning: 
 

  • Higher student attendance and lower dropout rates.

  • Fewer fights, greater understanding of diversity, and greater peer support.

  • The arts provide challenges to students of all levels—from beginner to expert.

  • Students learn to become engaged and self-educating. Instead of just regurgitating facts, they actively seek new information21% of students of low socioeconomic status who had studied music scored higher in math versus just 11% of those who had not. By senior year, these figures grew to 33% and 16%.

Education

(God, African American History, and Academic Tutoring)  

We believe in putting "back in" what was "taken out" of schools to help our youth thrive and become the best versions of themselves while at school and beyond. While we celebrate and welcome all faiths and cultures, God and African American history have little to no presence in many public schools, a place where children spend the majority of their time and recite the Pledge of Allegiance which includes the words "under God.......and justice for all". We will explore and explain in depth information from history books relevant to the present children so that they can gain clarity about ideas relevant to them and/or their history while reminding them of the freedom America allows us in being bold and proud, if we so choose, about who we serve as our God in all aspects of our lives. Our Illinois licensed teachers and highly qualified tutors help youth sharpen their intellect to enhance their current and future educational experiences for limitless success and mentor them during the entire process.

According to National Council for the Social Studies:

generally 1-2 lessons or only 8-9 percent of total class time is devoted to African American history where at least 56% of the students present are African American.

According to Wilbur Academy

there are academic, spiritual, social, and emotional advantages that come with

attending a faith-based school environment.
