Program 1

Cougar Prep Pre-School (3-5 year olds)

Our award-winning, project-based learning environment promotes creativity and academic excellence. Even our youngest students acquire the ability to present their ideas and share knowledge they have gained through various projects. Students engage in a variety of projects specifically targeted to state standards.

Projects are supported with content time where lessons including Montessori and traditional are taught. We take the best of many educational philosophies and incorporate them into our engaging learning environments. Cougar Prep students work on 3-5 projects per year. Following each project, students participate in a presentation of learning (POL) where they share their knowledge with a group of mentors and or/experts.

Program 3

Cougar Middle & High School (6th-12th)

At The Clariden School, we believe that preparation for college begins early. Content necessary for success on college admissions tests, such as the SAT/ACT, are taught throughout the student’s academic career. Projects are designed and classes structured to work on practicing necessary skills across all content areas.

Projects: Students work on a total of 7 projects throughout the school year. Projects incorporate content areas and range in scope from STEM/STEAM projects such as robotics and rocketry to literature and history based projects. All projects begin with an inquiry question and have real life application. Projects meet and exceed state standards aligning with TEKS. Each project ends with a presentation of learning (POL) where students present what they have learned to a panel of experts.
