Jr. Levels Scholars
Grades 5 to 7
The Junior Scholars program involves an accelerated interdisciplinary curriculum on science, history, culture, and more, in which students will have not only the opportunity to broaden their world views and consider the world around them in a more comprehensive way, but also to share their opinions in open discussions. Organized thematically by universal motifs such as “creation,” “change,” “destruction,” and so on, Junior Scholars seeks to connect and complement information learned in school (which is often misleadingly separated into discrete subjects rather than treated as different perspectives of the same whole). levels@greatnecklibrary.org
