Our theme for this summer will be Power Leaders.  The classes will be taught by NYS certified teachers in the following subjects: Writing, Arts and Sciences focusing on the theme.  Students are assigned to three classes daily that are appropriate to their grade level.    
They will learn in a relaxed and supportive environment that values creativity and intelligence while meeting others with similar talents and interests that will possibly develop into lasting friendships. Class size is limited to ensure maximum individual attention and creative group work. There will be no testing or grading, just learning and fun.
