Extra Credit

Creative writing, math, fitness, art, career exploration, and more for 6th-8th graders.

Extra Credit: The variety show made by and for students

Extra Credit keeps students engaged in learning with short, interactive lessons around creative writing, math, fitness, and art. Through weekly themes, students will also explore animals, engineering, the environment, sports, and careers, and see behind-the-scenes field trips. Each season features a cast of teens from across the state that host and help produce what goes on air!

Episodes Spanning Multiple Grades

The first four seasons of Extra Credit are perfect for 4th-5th grade students. The NEW season 5, premiering this fall, is made for 6th-8th grade students.
