We are excited to announce and let everyone know that Atheneum School is becoming "The Center for Education" where we will offer our future educational programs. Lydia and Kevin have been actively engaged in offering models and methods for improving education at all levels from elementary through graduate school. We have been working with a collaboration between the University of Alaska, the Anchorage School District, and the Anchorage Museum for a large grant to improve teacher education in arts and culture. We have also been teacher training and doing Socratic Seminars at Rogers Park elementary in Anchorage. To extend this kind of work, and include other educational opportunities, we are forming "The Center for Education" as our new umbrella. These programs include classes open to the public like our Learn to Drive, Off-road First and our ongoing Internal Arts, Tai Chi and Ba Gua programs. We offer Socratic Seminars in a variety of formats, from facilitating retreats for Nature Conservation organizations to reading groups open to the general public. Please feel free to contact us if you have an interest in our programs.
