Add-On Extensions

Add-On Classes

Some of our courses are advertised as having “add-ons” or “extensions” as options. These are smaller sub-sets of our main class where there is more focused attention on higher-order skills. You can choose to count these extensions as either an extra 1/2 credit for high school, or bump up a single credit to honors level.


Add-Ons are for students to go higher

All add-ons occur the 1/2-hour following the main class. There is approximately an additional 2 hours of homework each week as an average. Despite having this additional, focused attention from the tutor in smaller groups, the cost of an add-on only $5/week more.


The following courses have add-ons:
