About our Focus On Program

Begin your science journey by diving deeply into each subject.

The Focus On Series is a semester-long unit study that encourages kids to ‘focus on’ one subject at a time. This series is offered for an age range of either elementary, middle school, or high school.*

The Focus On Series is based on a “block” teaching method, where focused learning is condensed to a shorter “block” of time. It was purposed for those parents and teachers wanting a solid introductory level science course who also want to sequence their own science program. The Focus On Series is also beneficial for the student with an inherent interest in one particular area of science.

*only high school chemistry is available at this time.
