They offer students four areas to expand their knowledge, the Chopper Shop, the Style Shop, the Scholar Shop, which every student must attend, and for music, the Beat Shop.  They provide after-school and summer programming for middle and high school students.

Be sure to check out their website to see the bicycles their students design and build, as well as the clothing students make in the Style Shop.  For your listening enjoyment please watch this music video of an original song by their students titled “Study Hard” and be sure to visit their YouTube channel to view more of their students’ music videos.
