Life Skills Development
We weave the nationally recognized USTA NJTL First Serve Life Skills curriculum into all program offerings to emphasize and encourage positive character development, a sense of belonging and personal achievement. Hands-on activities provide positive interaction and promote social skills development through team building and tennis fitness to help increase self-esteem, awareness and personal confidence.
Young people today are faced with more choices than previous generations. Every child must make some decisions daily without adult involvement. Therefore, students must be armed with the knowledge and moral compassion they need to make the right choices. Character Education sessions use the Six Pillars (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship) in weekly hands-on activities to encourage students to always do the right thing.
Chess Club and Instruction
Playing chess has proven to help students enhance their creativity, improve their power of concentration, develop and expand critical thinking skills, boost memory and retention and achieve superior academic performance. Chess is extremely popular among our participants. Instructors bring the benefits of chess to students in a manner that is both fun and engaging. We invite students, ages 6 – 18, to join us and experience the exciting world of chess.
The goal of the Book Club is to promote and encourage the joy of reading by discussing and exploring various genres of literature in an effort to broaden the knowledge of students as we enhance their vocabulary, inference skills and socialization skills. We encourage students to commit to reading daily. In addition to the reading, they are asked to make notes such as questions, comments and vocabulary notes for discussion at the meetings to help ensure thought-provoking discussion sessions.
College and Career Bound
Prospective college students find it very helpful to talk with college representatives and business owners when trying to make their college and career choices. MACH Academy, Inc. provides college preparation and career exploration sessions year-round for middle and high school participants. Sessions provide information and facts to help students make the college search and career selection process easier and more personal. These sessions are designed to encourage high school students throughout the Central Savannah River Area to take the next step on their education/career journey.
