We offer the following A+ Summer Programs:
A+ Middle School: this program immerses rising 6th - 8th grade students in an environment that encourages advanced thinking, creative problem solving, and a lifelong love of learning. For six days, students will explore their potential as inventors, detectives, and strategists. Interdisciplinary classes will strengthen students’ talents in reading, writing, math, and science while pushing them to employ these skills in new and imaginative ways.
A+ High School: this program challenges rising 9th - 10th grade students with high-level academic activities that develop the skills needed for high school success and achievement. Over the course of seven days, students will attend classes in advanced argumentative writing, critical reading, and logic/ problem-solving. Students will also receive seminars and lectures covering study skills and strategies such as time management, note taking and course planning.
A+ Pre-College: Rising 11th and 12th-grade students prepare for college-level academics and build skills to qualify for top colleges at A+ Summer Pre-College. Students attend courses in logic, research, writing, and presentations and develop the vocabulary, problem-solving and critical reading skills necessary for success on exams and in college-level courses.
A+ Leadership: Available for both middle-school and high-school students, our A+ Summer Leadership programs are designed to help students become effective leaders through a focus on key areas of leadership development such as awareness of personal leadership style, effective communication, and practical, hands-on experience.
Our programs are available on the campuses of UC Berkeley, Stanford, UCLA, Georgetown, Yale, and Tufts.
"Compared to other academic camps this was the best by FAR! The teachers are very passionate about what they do. Camp was very college-like — I felt like I was a Stanford student. I would recommend the program because it's a real college experience that every kid should have."
