TBPA seeks to encourage, implement and reinforce college and career awareness for all young learners, especially our 4th and 5th graders, through a variety of real-world experiences. Our students will engage deeply into these real-world experiences by joining one or more of the the following teams.

DEBATE TEAM: The students from TBPA will participate in several debate activities, assignments and events that will cause for our debate students to compete in various debate conferences. This program requires students to research, debate, and caucus on pressing international issues (such as child protection, freshwater resources and more) as they engage in authentic simulations.

STEM TEAM: The students integrate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education) by creating, building, and programming robots to solve real-world challenges. Our students will compete regularly in various competitions.We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.

THE AQUARIUM TEAM: The Long Beach Aquarium has offered Tiny Babe’s Preparatory Academy opportunities that provide extended and enhanced marine studies and research to our 2nd through 5th graders. Our Aquarium Team will participate in activities that broaden their knowledge of thousands of species of marine life and complie data on everything from visitor interactions at different exhibits to whale shark rates of speed while swimming. The students observe how the animals are fed and taken care of behind the scene; the part that visitors rarely see. Each student will have his/her identification badge, and employee shirt.

VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS TEAM: This team is introduced to different forms of creative activity. Forms such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, video, filmmaking and architecture. Many artistic disciplines (performing arts, conceptual art, textile arts) involve various aspects of the visual arts. Our students will perform before live audiences and on closed set film productions.

GLOBAL STUDIES & TRAVEL: TBPA is committed to creating global citizens; therefore, as funding is available, our students will be taken on national and international trips. Prior to these trips, students are required to learn about the history, cultures, religions, education systems, and economies of the places we will visit. An emphasis is also placed on service to these communities. It is our plan for our students to travel to various cities, states and provinces in at least three (3) of the seven (7) continents by the time they graduate from 5th grade.
