Teen Program at Village Academy

Ages 13 to 18 years

The Teen Program provides youth with opportunities that promote self-esteem, decision-making skills and healthier lifestyles. By exposing teens to new opportunities, they stay engaged in meaningful activities that build real, transferable skillsthat can be applied outside of school. An array of options are available for teens, including sports and computer access. The Media and Photography Club allow students to create music and record CDs, edit and produce videos, publish school newsletters and broadcast school announcements. Teens also have the option to play basketball and participate in other physical activities. Extra-curricular activities present opportunities to these teens that they would otherwise not receive.
