    Empowerment is essential for Middle School students as they learn to navigate the complex world of social norms, friends, family, and education.  During these years, students develop a deeper sense of self and learn how to advocate for themselves and others. Empowerment is the foundation of that development. The Drew Empowered Learners  focuses on empowerment by developing confidence in core subjects, exploring career opportunities, academic enrichment, and exploring student led projects.  The program will include a variety of activities including but not limited to:

    • Academic Enrichment

    • Asynchronous English and Math VSOL Standards

    • The Arts and Music Education through Cultural Awareness

    • Physical Education, Recreational Activities and MIndfulness Workshops

    • STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math 

    • Project Based Learning

    • Career Exploration 

    Our goal as Empowered Learners is to connect the dots of information in our classes and in our world to create whole brain thinkers for tomorrow.


    This is a fully online program that will be accessible though Canvas. 

    Empowered Learners will be before and after school Monday-Thursday, with the program starting on Monday, September 21 at 3:30pm.  Empowered Learners will be implemented in two phases.
