Pine Point School is a year-round center of engaged learners: a place where people of all ages are inspired to explore ideas, build deep understanding, and work ethically for the common good. Our Evergreen programs support our traditional academic curriculum and foster our mission of actively engaging our students in reaching solutions creatively, collaboratively, and compassionately.
We offer Evergreen courses throughout the school year and during the summer for preschoolers through adults in academics, the arts, athletics, nature, service learning, and technology. Anyone can be a learner at Pine Point. Whether you are a child or an adult you are sure to find an Evergreen program that will inspire life-long learning in you.
Learning Lab will be offered in the Fall, Winter, and Spring Monday-Friday from 3:30-5:30 p.m. for students in grades 2-9. Students can enroll for one hour or the entire 2-hour session. Pine Point teachers will provide homework support, instructional assistance, or help with a particular project.
The Evergreen Learning Lab augments the classroom experience. Pine Point faculty will be on hand to provide individualized and small group support for students to:
- Organize and plan for independent work
- Discuss projects
- Research and explore
- Study and complete assignments
- Ask questions
Students will develop a stronger sense of how to use independent learning time effectively, have an opportunity to work collaboratively with peers on projects, and hone self-advocacy skills. We recognize the desire of parents to create balance for their families. Students who take advantage of this opportunity at school may be able to make regular progress on projects and get much or all of their independent work done before heading home for the evening. Having more time to reconnect as a family at the end of the day is good for everyone, and the Learning Lab can help!
Creative Play is the perfect opportunity for friends to meet after school! Students in grades 2-5 get to play with their classmates as well as those in different grades in a safe, supervised environment. Lead by Pine Point’s early childhood teachers, Creative Play provides supervision while allowing students the freedom of choice that fosters creative explorations.
Students in preschool, kindergarten and 1st grade can experience a fun afternoon from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. with the teachers students love from our early childhood program.
