After School Programs: PLUS+

PLUS+ is the afternoon enrichment program of Covenant Christian School.  We seek to offer students an array of choices that will give them useful skills that can be used to bless others or lead to a lifelong hobby.  The values that undergird the program are the same biblical principles that guide the purpose and life of the school.   Leaders of the afternoon enrichment are members of our school Covenant community.

ODYSSEY OF THE MIND- 2nd to 3rd grade

The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students to learn creative problem-solving methods while having fun in the process. For more than twenty-five years, this unique program has helped teachers generate excitement in their students.  By tapping into creativity, and through encouraging imaginative paths to problem-solving, students learn skills that will provide them with the ability to solve problems-great and small –for a lifetime.

The Odyssey of the Mind teaches students how to think divergently by providing open-ended problems that appeal to a wide range of interests.  Students learn how to identify challenges and to think creatively to solve those problems.  They are free to express their ideas and suggestions without fear of criticism.   The creative problem-solving process rewards thinking “outside of the box”.
