Program & Services Overview
Afterschool programs are increasingly recognized as playing a valuable role in improving science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education. MACH’s STEM exploration teaches participants to think critically and use engineering or technology in imaginative designs or creative approaches to real-world problems while building on students’ mathematics and science base. MACH Academy, Inc. believe that students participating in our After-school STEM program will impact their problem solving abilities, career awareness and “21st Century skills” such as team work.
Life Skills Development
We weave the nationally recognized USTA NJTL First Serve Life Skills curriculum into all program offerings to emphasize and encourage positive character development, a sense of belonging, and personal achievement. Hands-on activities provide positive interaction and promote social skills development through team building and tennis fitness to help increase self-esteem, awareness, and personal confidence.
Young people today are faced with more choices than previous generations. Every child must make some decisions daily without adult involvement. Therefore, students must be armed with the knowledge and moral compassion they need to make the right choices. Character Education sessions use the Six Pillars (Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship) in weekly hands-on activities to encourage students to always do the right thing.
