The name SKIESUnlimited combines the acronym for �Schools of Knowledge, Inspiration, Exploration and Skills� with the word �Unlimited� for the unlimited learning possibilities this exciting new initiative offers Army children and youth.

SKIESUnlimited provides a four-school framework with opportunities within the four service areas: 

School of Academic Skills, Mentoring & Intervention
School of Arts, Recreation & Leisure
School of Life Skills, Citizenship & Leadership
School of Sports, Fitness & Health

SKIESUnlimited encompasses instructional programs for children & youth from infancy to adolescence i.e., four weeks through the end of their senior year in high school.  Through SKIESUnlimited, children and youth in Family Child Care, Child Development Center, School Age Services, Middle School and Teen Programs have equal access to opportunities that expand their knowledge, inspire them, allow them to explore, and acquire new skills.  Courses such as gymnastics, dance, martial arts, piano and much more will be offered.

 Young people spend as much as 80% of their waking time outside the classroom.  When involved in instructional programs during the critical hours of 3-8 PM, they are less likely to engage in undesirable behavior.  Children and youth participate in instructional programs for a variety of reasons: to explore new skills, to pursue and nurture personal interests, to interact socially with others, to build a resume, to bolster a college application, or to foster a close relationship with caring, knowledgeable adults outside of home.

 Instructional programs foster the development of critical life, leadership, and social skills.  The latest educational research confirms that students� involvement in after-school instructional programs is beneficial on all levels.  Instructional programs have been shown to promote the intellectual development of children and youth.
