EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER.
ABOUT OUR CLUBS
It’s in the name! H.Y.P.E Clubs are designed for children to explore their interests, connect with their peers, and develop skills that can be carried well into adulthood. Children retain more of what they learn when experiencing learning in a real world setting while gaining the opportunity to apply their new found knowledge.
H.Y.P.E clubs are filled with education based activities that encourage this form of learning. You can read more about the clubs currently offered below!
Did you know that children learn best through play? Gameschooling, which is a popular style of homeschooling, allows your child to explore numerous subjects through online gaming, board games, and the use of gaming systems. Club membership includes a Minecraft Education account, complimentary Boddle Learning interactive math account, gaming related in-person as well as virtual fieldtrips, monthly virtual Minecraft meetups, and monthly in-person board game meetups. Students complete challenges and activities for the opportunity to collect merit badges. Board game meetups are the last Thursday of every month from 1-3p. Some parent participation required.

Formerly known as the Akoma Teens Club, H.Y.P.E Connection was created for teens and tweens to make friends and socialize. Teens can chat on the Akoma Teens private Discord chat server in between planned meetups. A great way for your teen to develop soft skills and build solid relationships!
H.Y.P.E Connection is only as good as the teens make it. It’s encouraged that they join the Discord server to connect with their peers. This helps them become more comfortable with in person meetups and allows them to share input on where, when, and how they want to connect with friends. Parents can volunteer for Discord moderator positions. For ages 12-17
