Fundamentally, this is a program for students who are willing—and excited—to push themselves academically and creatively.

Class lasts approximately five months. Each student must attend each class and complete all assignments, except for emergency circumstances. Each week, students will be assigned 1 to 2 hours of work outside of class. If students do not complete their assignments, they will not be allowed to stay in the program.

If students miss more than three classes in a year, they will not be allowed to stay in the program.

Each student’s family is responsible for transportation to and from each Wordsmiths class. We are happy to help with arranging carpools with other Wordsmiths parents whose children are attending the same school.
