A Summer Enrichment Camp

We celebrate the life of the mind, but we’ve seen too many bright, interesting campers who don’t necessarily fit well in a traditional school model to limit ourselves to those who’ve been classified as gifted.  Instead, we call our campers motivated

 Our classes offer specialization and individualized instruction unavailable outside of private lessons and college courses.  The smaller classes, innovative teachers, and longer meeting times allow the same course to be a comfortable introduction for the novice and a new challenge for the advanced student.

Summer enrichment programs are important for students’ future academic success! Multiple academic studies, both quantitative and qualitative, have shown that summer programs related to academics are beneficial to young learners. For younger students, it increases their sense of confidence and self-worth in a school environment. For those college bound students, it eases the transition to a higher level of academics. Statistical analysis has shown that at least 30% of the variance in the grade-point average of college freshmen in their first semester can be attributed to participating in a summer academic program.

It has also been found that students who are struggling in school have made substantial improvement in their performance after participating in supplementary programs with an academic component. The main driver of these students’ improvement is their change in attitude about academic performance and their investment in their own education. Making learning fun has been a central component of our summer camp program since 1982. We invite you to join us this summer to expand your child’s academic journey.
