Our quality sets us apart from other programs. EAC infuses all curriculum activities with Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) concepts and objectives. Our curriculum is based on weekly themes. These themes might be changing seasons, holidays, turning points in history, higher education, learning about self-esteem, etc. Our weekly themes tie into daily themes, which are as follows:
- Dell Math and Science Mondays: Sponsored by the Dell Foundation, our Monday curriculum encourages children to develop a passion for mathematics and science, and to pursue studying the aforementioned subjects in college.
- Make It Take It Tuesdays: Tuesday's curriculum will focus on theme-related individual craft and art activities, as well as occasional cooking projects that students will complete to enjoy at home.
- Crafty Art Wednesdays: This curriculum encourages children to use their "right brains" for creative and fun arts & crafts activities.
- Groovy Games Thursdays: Activities on this day help build camaraderie and kinship among peers, and teach children the importance of working as a team.
- Born to Run Fridays: Sponsored by RunTex Foundation, this program provides our children with endurance training, races, and marathons.
