Out of an abundance of caution, Venture Upward has suspended the onsite program, Venture School, and in-person community service projects. We hope to launch Venture School in January, pending COVID considerations. In replacement of Venture School, all students may choose to receive up to two subscription boxes for the first semester. See below for more information on this exciting alternative. We will serve local Arizona communities through virtual community services projects until January; we will have more details to share in the upcoming weeks.
Participating in our Venture School is a fantastic way to fulfill the elective course requirement. Our Venture School is a favorite aspect of the Venture Upward program! Our Venture School is an on-site, drop-off program that allows kids to explore and learn together with other Venture students. Experienced and enthusiastic teachers engage children in interactive, hands-on classes such as world geography, art, messy science experiments, cooking, money management, Spanish, taekwondo, and music exploration. Venture students will automatically be enrolled in Venture School, where an onsite program exists, unless otherwise approved.
Students also work together to serve their community. The Venture School staff coordinates service opportunities, and the entire family is encouraged to join in. A minimum of two service opportunities will be organized each school year. All Venture Upward students are invited to work alongside one another to serve their local communities.
We understand that an on-site elective is not the right fit for every student. We are excited to announce that we will be offering project-based subscription boxes for an at-home alternative to Venture School. There are over a dozen boxes to choose from that captivate a range of unique interests. The subscription boxes, which are yours to keep, will arrive at your door once per month. Boxes are designed to fulfill an elective course at home. A variety of subscription boxes are available and may focus on art, music, cooking, STEM, world history, US history, science, geography, coding, and more.
