Karis Language Academy in Irvine offers quality After School Enrichment classes with a focus on languages including Mandarin Chinese, Korean, and English for Beginners. Language classes concentrate on conversational speaking and listening skills as well as reading and writing. We help round out the school day with additional After School Enrichment activities including Coding (by CodeSpeak Labs), Yoga for Kids, Intro to Dance, Art, Piano & Violin Lessons, and Homework Help!
Our mission is to create an environment where children can begin to build solid foundations in these areas with the help of experienced teachers who are passionate about nurturing young minds. We know how important it is to use lively and engaging strategies in our classrooms, to develop children’s intrinsic motivation and make Karis Academy a place where kids love to learn!
Our experienced teachers know that children don’t learn by rote memorization and worksheets. We incorporate creative activities, interactive games, lively music, and structured movement into our lessons. Karis teachers have been trained in the developmental needs of children and know how to tailor instruction to engage different learning styles.
Karis Academy was founded by parents and teachers who share your goals for preparing your child to become a global citizen. We know that every child is unique! We keep our class sizes small so that teachers can provide individual attention to each student and consistent feedback to parents.
