Curriculum for the State of Illinois and Multidiscipline

Curriculum-Goals, Standards and Benchmarks

The curriculum will fit teaching requirements and it meets all ISBE learning Goals, Standards and Benchmarks. Plus, one of the exciting aspects of the program is that we have found that the archery program develops confidence and promotes a higher self-esteem to the students who are not normally involved in activities at school.
