“Enrichment programs are an example of empowering students to discover their interests, allowing them to be accountable for their own transformation.”Pembe Yasarlar, executive director, Crescent Academy International
Enrichment Programs empower growth
Students can explore and cultivate their own interests through many programs available at Crescent. Extracurricular programs allow students to immerse themselves in a wide range of activities and to engage with new interests, in community with fellow students, while building leadership and problem-solving skills.
