The golfing gurus at Edwin Watts Golf Academy diagnose and correct their students' poor swing and putting habits in an effort to help them improve their shots and lower their scores. In one-on-one swing-analysis sessions, students learn a repeatable swing that eliminates tendencies they may have to slice, hook, push, or pull the ball. A special laser attaches to the end of the player's club and tracks the swing path while JC Video swing-analysis software records the session from two separate angles, lest analysis be thrown off by only looking at the golfer's good side. Putting analysis employs Tomi technology to measure eight separate parameters of the putting stroke, from clubhead orientation at address to swing path and tempo. After swing and putting lessons, students may access the recordings on a password-protected website, so they can forward videos to friends or sports-documentary filmmakers.
The professional teachers and staff at The Children’s Courtyard nurture minds and nourish spirits in tots ranging from 6 weeks to 13 years old. Armed with training they receive at The Children’s Courtyard’s unique master schools, they lead engaging programs in interactive classrooms, most of which brim with computers equipped with up to 50 learning programs. Class participants play games, sing songs, and interact with friends, which allows them to learn valuable skills in cognition, conflict resolution, and academic performance through activities geared toward their age group. Regular programs inspire little minds in half- and full-day increments, and summer camps take kids on field trips to see new animals at the zoo, sing a song at a recording studio, and muse over the complex metaphors for the role of capitalism in a local fairy-tale play.

Rosewood Academy's teachers spend as much time learning as instructing. Using a blend of Montessori method and traditional, structured classes, they help preschool-aged children figure out how they learn best. Then, they use that knowledge to introduce kids to the full range of academic subjects: reading, writing, music, language, math, science, and arts. They tailor lessons to each child's preferred styles of learning to produce academic excellence.
The teachers don't let the end of the school year slow them down in their work, though. During the summer, the run academically focused summer camps with fun, hands-on themes. For example, they provide opportunities for kids to learn about wild animals, blending biology and art into classroom lessons that culminate in a trip to the zoo. They also encourage inquisitiveness through an inventor's workshop, teach practical kitchen skills and chemistry to young chefs, and explore watery ecosystems with those too young to recall Kevin Kostner's Waterworld.
