Global Purpose Academy's (GPA's) enrichment programs provide children with the opportunity to learn and explore the world around them. Our enrichment programs expose children to various cultures and languages. We aim to teach children to respect our world (people & environment) and love one another.  We are also dedicated to help children by customizing bridge programs to ensure their success in the regular school year. Our academic bridge programs include a concentrated / differentiated focus on reading and math.  We use the Summer Skills, A Brighter Child and Spectrum curriculums for math, language arts, and foreign language learning during the summer.  We also supplement our programs with online educational resources such as Bright Education, Khan Academy and Raz Kids.

We design creative and fun themes to encourage children to love to learn. Our enrichment programs provide language education (Mandarin, Spanish & French) and cultural experiences. Additionally, students will participate in field trips, science experiments, math and reading enrichment activities and projects in technology and the arts (fine and performing).
