Atlantic Impact students travel through time and history during a rigorous college level course experience. Through group discussions, readings of course materials, writing exercises, evaluation of primary source material, and individual and group activities, students will learn not only about history, but also become more deeply connected to where they live. Through this, our students develop the critical thinking and college ready skills necessary to make good choices and become successful life-long learners.
As a supplement to their academic experiences, our students participate in a combination of after school and weekend extended learning opportunities. These opportunities are designed to extend and reinforce program goals in addition to providing learning opportunities that close achievement gaps and further develop college ready skills. Once a month, students have the opportunity to take part in extended learning opportunities in the community. These opportunities are designed to provide innovative experiences that help students master program curriculum through key site visits and conversations with experts in the community.
