Signum Academy Clubs

Signum Academy Clubs are online extracurricular groups that help kids and teens learn remotely through Signum’s interactive classroom. Join a book club, learn a new language, or practice writing skills. Lots of opportunities are available for young people to talk and learn together in a safe, remote educational environment.

Clubs meet for two 1-hour sessions per week with groups containing students in similar age groups (3rd – 5th grade, 6th – 8th grade, and 9th – 12th grade). Students will also receive activities and assignments to complete between club meetings.
