About the company

Curtanna is an Executive Functions and Social-Emotional skills development program inspired by the Olympic sport of fencing for elementary aged children (k-5). Through a mix of over 500 exercises and activities, the program aims at improving pro-social behavior, academic performance and attendance in children. Curtanna provides an active learning experience for participants through organized play in a fun, safe, and inclusive environment.

Our innovative method of delivery allows for an easy implementation into schools. We provide full training and equipment to our instructors and a platform used for empowerment. The platform prepares instructors for class, collects data during class, aids in class time management, and creates automatic individual performance reports.

The program is meant for children to have fun - without them realizing they are developing life skills! We hope you can join our team of instructors.
