    Champions is proud to foster safe, engaging spaces to let kids be kids. Our curriculum for grades K–6 is based on the latest educational research and focuses on building the three critical abilities that have the most impact on a child’s future success: social-emotional skills, executive-function skills, and inquiry-based learning all through choice and play based activities. Champions is also a safe space for kids to explore, be original, and rise to their next challenge; In our programs, we help students celebrate what makes them unique—because that’s what makes them awesome!
