Girls in Charge

For Rising 4th and 5th Graders
We offer week-long thematic programs that are rooted in creative play and exploration. Students will dive into a variety of imaginative projects that will culminate in a celebration and showcase of student work.

Tuition: $750 per week

Week 1 - Stories & Surprises: Monday, June 15 - Friday, June 19
Throughout this week, students will explore imaginary worlds while fabricating stories and creating interactive artworks. Students will design and create their own costumes based on characters they have created. They will also build and create scenery based on stories they write. Projects will include an immersive art experience and a collaboration of visual and performing art.

Week 2 - Quests & Voyages: Monday, June 22 - Friday, June 26
During this week, students will explore the journeys of different female pioneers and leaders through creative projects. Students will imaginatively join the adventures of several of these mavericks and create artwork based on their expeditions. Inspired by the work of Freya Stark, Nellie Bly, Bessie Coleman, and Jeanne Baret, the week will culminate in an interactive showcase for students, family, and friends.
