Learn More
YSGA initiates bilingual instruction from Kindergarten through 8th grade, offering a program that blends a widely spoken language (Spanish) with a crucial language (Turkish). In this context, a "critical" language refers to one for which there is a significant demand for individuals who can proficiently listen, speak, read, and write in that language.

Two World Languages

At Young Scholars, we introduce two globally significant foreign languages, Spanish and Turkish, starting in kindergarten. YSGA also employs technology-assisted curriculum and research-based methods to offer differentiated instruction to our students.

Differentiated Instruction

Our scholars are taught to set achievable goals and monitor their progress with guidance from their teachers. Their learning activities encompass both cooperative group work and individual projects.

Extended Day Programs

Young Scholar students have the option to participate in The Extended Day program which includes clubs like: tutoring, homework help, visual arts, gaming, gardening, drama, and more! YSGA also offers a Saturday Academy Program for ongoing academic support and testing strategies. 

Small Class Sizes

We limit the class size to 22 students per class. Small class size improves student outcomes, grades, and test scores. Small classes allow each child to be seen as a unique, whole-person, with his or her own learning style and pattern of growth.
