Culture

At Timbuk2 Academy, instilling a strong sense of pride is critical to building confidence in our children. Culture is the center for which a child gains a sense of self identity and wholeness. Our culturally centered curriculum engulfs our children with a profound understanding of who they are, while embracing and celebrating their individuality.
