Intensive Academic Summer Camp

Jump Into Next Year (Grades 1-8)

For students looking to retain academic growth from the school year and improve their skills, our intensive academic summer camp programs are the perfect fit. Particularly focused on math, reading, and writing, these intensive programs cater to campers in both lower and middle school. With low student to teacher ratios, we ensure each camper is given the proper attention and instruction needed to excel throughout the summer and into the next school year.

In addition to providing individualized instruction, we conduct pre and post evaluations to highlight areas of strength and challenge. These evaluations allow our teachers to best understand the profile of each camper, hone in on problems, and address them.  Our post evaluation at the end of the course and then documents all the improvements made, as well as offer valuable recommendations.
