HOW DOES IT WORK?

STEP | 1

EXPLORATION PHASE

Register for a free, 1.5 hr assessment & tour with our lead engineer and instructor so we can provide you with a personalized, recommended learning map for your child.

STEP | 2

DETERMINE THE BEST PROGRAM APPROACH FOR YOUR CHILD

If you feel that our Fab Academy would be a good fit for your child, the next step would be helping you determine if it's best for your child to focus on a skills-based, project-based or, career-based learning approach.

PROJECT-BASED | SKILLS-BASED | SUBJECT-BASED

STEP | 3

CHOOSE A PAYMENT APPROACH

We recommend at least a seasonal registration to have sufficient time for your child to explore multiple areas and to see their progress; however, it is possible to pay monthly with no further commitment.

Monthly (no-commitment), seasonal, or annual.
