The Shooting Star Program provides focused intensive courses for advanced and motivated students in math, English, and writing. This program is intended for children who want to take the necessary steps to move above and beyond their current academic grade level in order to foster a passion for learning. By monitoring the students progress as they move higher in their skill level, we allow students to benefit the most from their own abilities. This program encourages students to flourish and reach their highest potential with proper guidance. This sets the foundation for students to gain admission into Specialized High Schools such as Hunter College High School and Stuyvesant High School.
Starting from the basic rules of effective composition and soaring through the various genres of the 5 paragraph essay, our highly individual instruction allows students to build confidence in their writing and communicate their ideas logically in written composition. Designed as an enrichment program with a limited number of seats, this course covers grammar, diction, style, creative versatility, and is sure to turn your child into a successful and expressive writer.
Reading and writing will involve a combination of comprehension, grammar, and vocabulary. In addition to daily exercises, we will also be assigning a book for homework. Students will be asked to submit written responses to questions and we will take time to discuss the work in class. Each student is required to have a physical copy of the book, and will need to bring it in for these discussions. Students meet once a week on Fridays.

To extend the learning process and ensure children reach their full learning potential though the utilization of the out-of school hours. All Kids Can Learn has been offering an afterschool academic enrichment program in a distraction free learning environment since 2001. The children not only get a chance to clarify and crystallize what they are learning at school: they set to work on extra reading, advanced math, newspaper article discussion, historical events research, and various creative projects which go beyond their regular school curriculum. This stimulates their interest in learning and broadens their knowledge and vision.
When children enjoy learning, they show the largest improvement in their grades. At our program we strive to instill an attitude of enthusiasm and curious inquiry. They understand their efforts and hard work will pay off as they meet their goals.
