Social Skills GroupsRegistration for Winter 2017 groups is open! Check out the schedule and group descriptions and visit our enrollment page to get signed-up!
Our groups help young people develop the skills and confidence to feel more comfortable as they navigate the social world. Prioritizing each student's needs, we focus on social skills such as communication, friendship, understanding social nuances and other similar topics.
Groups meet weekly and are 75 minutes in duration, with snacks provided. Groups run in 10 week cycles: fall, winter and spring. To help foster sustainable friendships, we offer free weekend 'social nights out' such as game night and bowling night.
Prospective students and parents attend a free enrollment meeting to learn more about the groups and to help us determine best fit.
In age-based groups we teach social skills through discussion and innovative games.
- Explorers (ages 8-10)
- Navigators (ages 10-12)
- Teen Crew (ages 13-15)
- Delphi (ages 15-19)
- Girls Rule
In theme-based groups we use shared-interest activities such as video production or theatre/improv as a forum for students to practice new skills. These groups are divided by age.
- Video Production
- Dungeons and Dragons
- Indoor Rock Climbing
- Building & Inventing
