21st CAEP programs are more than just “another program!!!”
They are an exciting way to help students develop the critical analysis skills they will need as the move forward in life. They are a fun way for students to connect their classroom experience with their home experience and most of all, these programs have been developed to teach students how to create opportunities through hard work and determination.
Through any of our programs students learn what it takes to go from idea and inspiration to message delivery and product. We have changed the standard teaching model and tied sports to academics, writing to design, presenting and public speaking to research and investigation, and invention to product development. The process we developed will help students prepare for college and be valuable when they enter the job market.
InventionX (PIB $250)* (Launched)
The InventionX five-stage invention process teaches students how to think, not what to think. The process and exercises can be applied to any area of STEM content. Students will experience the invention process though hands-on activities and create strategies for implementing the process in their own program or classroom. The curriculum is geared toward formal and informal educators.
Tennis Camps and Clinics (Launched)
Our approach to teaching the fundamentals of tennis are simple. We connect what students are learning in the classroom to what they should be doing on the court. Math, English, History, Physics, and Health are all part of the curriculum. Students will be having so much fun that they probably won’t notice they are learning more than just a sport.
20th Century Time Capsule Media and Journalism Project (In the works)
The ability to communicate effectively is a skill that has always been an essential component of success. This program takes three teams of students from three different schools through the process of producing a local history film. Students learn to work together by planning and outlining the project from beginning to end. They are tasked to find commonalities in ideas, themes, history, work habits, and organizational skills in order to meet deadlines and produce a high quality product.
Financial Planning for Continuing Education (Launched)
Many students are not prepared for a college classroom, much less the financial planning needed to ensure they have a seat in the classroom. Our financial planning program is designed remind each student that they are an individual and that they must create their own opportunities to succeed as they take their next steps in life. After going through our program, students will be aware of their value and how to increase their value to a potential school and employers.
YOUR Scholarships (Launched)
YOUR Scholarships is a program we developed to help students find the scholarships that really matchup to the student. Many programs cast a wide net when it comes to scholarship searches, but we believe that students will be better off as they learn about themselves and their value. Taking this approach will help students fine tune their search and help them submit a high quality application.
Planning for the Future Scholar Bank (Summer 2018) (Launched)
Planning for the Future Scholar Bank (PFTF) is currently under development. Our goal is to provide gap funding to students who have a solid financial plan for continuing education. Initially, PFTF will provide low interest (1%-6%) loans to students who need to fill a gap in funding tuition. We believe that students should not graduate from college in debt and should have every chance possible to succeed without a student loan burden. With Zogo Finance, we will provide technology to our students help them learn how to plan and manage for the Future.
