Course Schedules

    Gifted students often struggle in classes geared toward their age level. Parents are left wondering how to help their children meet course requirements while still providing their students with the challenge they crave.

    At Athena’s, parents determine the best placement for their gifted child–a placement that is based on their child’s ability level, not their age.

    Students learning at elementary through high school levels will find courses to inspire them and help them retain their love of learning.

    • Students should be placed in our courses according to their ability or learning level.
    • Students are welcome to join courses already in progress and review material as time permits.
    • Scheduling issues? No problem! Students are welcome to attend the live webinars or watch the webinar recordings — whatever works with their schedules.
