For middle school students the curiosity for magic is powerful and motivating! The Magic Club Academy offers an opportunity for these students to develop new skills and individual talents. The program provides a developmental, scaffolded learning experience where students interested in magic will grow as magicians in a meaningful, organized, confident manner. The Magic Club is a collaborative experience where members challenge themselves to learn a new skill while supporting each other by sharing efforts, offering suggestions, constructive critiques, and encouragement, and celebrating each other’s accomplishments.
Some students don’t participate in extracurricular sports or clubs, such as science or chess, because they do not offer a natural representation of these student’s interests or personalities. Magic Club fills a void in the lives of many of these students, presenting itself as a niche for them.
Magic also provides an outlet for many children to express themselves in a non-traditional, alternative way, as they gain appreciation from others and build their confidence.
How and where students spend their after-school time hold significant implications for their development. The Magic Club provides a safe alternative for youth during the after-school period.
Essentially, the Magic Club Academy offers a unique way for students to express themselves, develop a talent and skill, while developing self-confidence, discipline, respect and creativity in an incredibly fun way.
