ZGA Education Programs are designed to support academic achievement, health/wellness and social/emotional skills.
The ACE philosophy is designed to support academic achievement, health/wellness and social/emotional skills by guiding children through educational processes that include decision-making, problem solving and working together toward common goals. When combined with a tennis program, it provides important Developmental Assets and reflects the ideals and principles of the Zina Garrison Academy by giving children access to a safe, healthy, educational environment. The lessons are engaging, support classroom instruction, and encourage students to communicate and participate in each activity.
