An enrichment program is a supplementary educational program designed to enhance
students' academic experience and challenge them academically. It is not a replacement for
the core curriculum, but rather an addition to it.
There are many different types of enrichment activities that can be used in an enrichment
program. Education is no longer only about learning to read and write or adding and subtracting.
It is about using engagement activities that challenge the student both mentally and
physically. Learning does not only take place in the traditional manner of the teacher as the
lecturer and the students as the recipient. Students need to be actively involved in their
education and enrichment in school is the way to accomplish this.
