Day & Time: Thursday 12:30-1:40 

Grade: 7th-9th 

Mentor: Jon Alston, aka Master Jon



From Ancient Greeks to the Norse Gods, from Elves to pixies to werewolves and vampires, we’ll explore all the parts of the myth, legend, and the fantastical worlds we all love! We’ll see how the view of the world changed through the centuries and differing cultures by learning about its mythology. This class is all about the ancient stories we told each other to help us understand the world we live in, and how these stories can and do relate to our world today.


The class will be filled with discussions, a few short readings, and some hands-on projects to help the students relate what they have learned in class. Some topics we will cover are:

  • Creation Stories
  • The Great Flood
  • Mythological Symbolism
  • Monsters and Beasts
  • Obscure Folktales and Fairytales


If you love the strange and bizarre, or why we people used to say “By Jove!”, this is the class for you!


Required Materials:

  • Notebook dedicated for this class
  • Pen or pencil for taking notes


All classes are full-year classes. Students enrolled in a Fall Semester class will automatically enroll for the Spring Semester in December to ensure their place in the class. Pricing is per semester.
