There is always more to learn... Fun, Active, & Educational Programs

Our Homeschool Physical Education Curriculum

We believe that Taekwondo is the best for a homeschool physical education curriculum. Statutory Provisions: Texas Administrative Code (TAC), Chapter 116, Subchapter A: At least 135 minutes of moderate or vigorous structured physical activity per week in elementary school (grades K-5). Small class sizes and great instructors ensure that your student is not only being active but having a great time while learning valuable life skills.

Pre-School and Kindergartners Daycare Alternative - Tiny Tiger Training

The ATA Tiger curriculum program was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 3 through 6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect, and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children's motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. This curriculum should provide students with the most fun and exciting training methods available for this age group (www.atamartialarts.com).

Taekwondo Afterschool (TAS) Program

The Taekwondo Afterschool (TAS) program provides your student with a safe, comfortable location to complete homework after school. They have the opportunity in interact with their friends in a structured environment and they will learn Taekwondo. This program is designed to serve as a bridge for the student and the parent between school and home. Students are provided a snack after school, assistance with their homework and will partake in Taekwondo instruction two to three times per week. We talk with the students about their schoolday and document and relay any concerns immediately to the parents. We are available for all day care during teacher in-service days.

About SMA Best Summer Camp Program

If you are looking for the best summer day program Tyler has to offer, look no further. Though we have all day care, we are not a day care. We are a privately owned martial arts school. That means your child is cared for by coaches that are passionate about inspiring their growth and development. Your child will also benefit from our Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math (STEAM) curriculum! Our owners are Dr Dometrius Hill, EdD and Christina Hill, Licensed Occupational Therapist. All of our staff receive training in childhood growth and development, have clean background checks, and most are parents, just like you! We are the leaders at teaching students with special needs. Songahm Martial Arts Academy is veteran owned and operated.

Our Mission & Core Values

Our mission is to make our community a better place, one student at a time. Our mission is to offer a safe environment that fosters learning. We strive to build your child's confidence and self esteem. We are committed to making your child bully proof by teaching them how to de escalate conflict and believe in themselves. We are committed to your child's education. We place high value on character, leadership, social skills, and building confidence in school readiness skills. We believe that education is the path to an abundant life and we make learning fun.

What We Offer

We have small teacher to student ratios to provide your child with the attention they deserve. Whenever your child is enrolled in our summer camps or after school programs, taekwondo class tuition is included. We balance their need to play, learn, and grow, with a need for down time. We achieve this through pairing a variety of physical activities with STEAM education (science, technology, engineering, art, math). They will dance, play, learn taekwondo, draw, write, act, and learn to work together. We believe the world is our classroom. Learning is enriched by weekly field trips in the community. Your child will have fun and make friendships that will last a lifetime. At SMA, we are a family! Our summer day camps are held all day long, all summer long, while you work. We've got you covered.
