Our academic curriculum is modeled on best practices for the acquisition of language, and built on developmentally-appropriate activities based on age and degree of at-home exposure to Ukrainian. Grades kindergarten and above are supported through engaging and colorful textbooks to guide reading and assignments.
All classes are language immersive and taught by native Ukrainians with excellent teaching credentials. Younger grades offer clarification in English if and when it is needed, but we find the youngest students absorb an incredible amount of language.
