Our students have begun working on their Frosty Musings posters!
For our Frosty Musings contest, each student has selected a personal word to implement in 2021, a word that will compassionately trigger for them an impactful reminder of the change they wish to make. These powerful paragraphs make manifest their words.

We specialize in writing, reading comprehension, and study skills, with a special focus on teaching 2nd grade through high school students to think for themselves. Branching beyond book boundaries, students engage in activities that build their confidence to explore new possibilities. To us, this is not just a business—it is a method of outreach to our community. In working to support confident and thoughtful self-expression, we hope to touch lives and do our part to cultivate a generation of socially responsible and creative individuals. Beyond Academics provides students direction and instruction that encourages and facilitates independent thought. Our goal is for students to become self-motivated and determined to express a distinct voice.
