Educational Programs for 6-17 year-olds


It is highly recommended that “access to culturally sensitive assessment and treatment services be available to ensure transition to a healthy adulthood."

Cleary, Dietz-Chavez, et al., 2017

We strongly believe that the trend of poor academic achievement for students for whom English is their second language can be reversed, and that all students can master academic standards if they are given time, support and instruction that focuses on their academic needs. With that in mind, the COH offers the following programs

Saturdays from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM Wednesdays from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

The Leadership and Learning Program incorporates Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STREAM) using the Motivation Education curriculum which emphasizes engaging multiple intelligences and hands-on learning.

For the Summer - Camp from July 9 to 13 and from August 6 to 10

From 8:00 to 4:00 PM


Students worked with the faculty on level 1 during the Spring.

Level 1  - In this introductory class, students explore character creation and storytelling 

which is at the heart of acting for the stage. 

They experience a wide variety of activities focused on introducing basic theater concepts 

such as ensemble, actor's tools, sharing the stage, dialogue, and action! 

This class introduces the young actor to a variety of techniques within the world of theater.
