1. SAM Academy School Site Program 
Whether requested for all-day or after-school time schedules, a customized program can be offered to meet your students’ needs and your school sites instructional objectives.  While rotating through 45-minute sessions, students will spend time thinking about—and doing—Science, Art, and Music through an inquiry-based curriculum that is intrinsically fun. Students participate in a facilitator-explorer workshop/laboratory rather than in a traditional teacher-pupil-classroom environment. The SAM Educator organizes instruction and ensures that materials and tools are available for as needed for each lesson. All materials, instruments, and tools required are prepared ahead of time and provided as needed for effective instruction.
  • Students participate in inquiry-based activities that develop conceptual learning throughout the curriculum.
  • Techniques and practices of sound language arts instruction are enhanced through embedded literacy strategies.
  • The skills essential for all students to internalize and apply reading comprehension strategies are emphasized.
  • The integrated design in which academic words are introduced and reinforced throughout the SAM Program enhances the acquisition of technical vocabulary.
  • Academic language development is further supported through expository and informational text highlighted in programs selected for use in the SAM Program.
 2. SAM Academy Family Nights
SAM Academy Family Nights presents Science, Art, and Music activities at your school for parents and children to enjoy together.  Research shows that students' enjoyment of learning and achievement dramatically increase with parent participation.
         SAM Academy Family Nights are to provide:
  • Opportunities for parents and students to be partners in learning.
  • Cooperative learning activities that develop problem solving, questioning, and communication skills.
  • Informal learning activities that supplement the child's school experience.
  • Opportunities for students to develop deeper knowledge, positive attitudes, and understanding of Science concepts, Art forms, Engineering, and Music. 
  • Activities that support creativity while developing skills in Science, Art, and Music.
  • Understanding of STEM careers.
School's Responsibilities:
  • Provide a spacious area for centers (cafeterias preferred).
  • Provide volunteers to help set up and pack up materials. Volunteers would also be helpful to observe and assist during the evening.
  • Provide a light snack during the evening for all participants.
  • Provide publicity to encourage participation.
  • Attempt to limit number of participants to no more than the capacity of the cafeteria or all-purpose room.
  • Evening activities usually scheduled 4:30-7:30 or 8:00pm.

During each specialized SAM Academy Summer Camp children enjoy unparalleled time and attention from our talented staff. Students will spend time thinking about—and doing—Science, Art, and Music through an inquiry-based curriculum that is intrinsically fun.  Students participate in a facilitator-explorer workshop/laboratory rather than in a traditional teacher-pupil-classroom environment.  Children will be grouped by age, grade level or performance level.
