• For $19, you get an on-location, high-mileage conventional oil change (a $40 value). • For $29, you get an on-location, synthetic oil change (a $70 value). On Location Lubrication's handy auto experts take the grunt work out of caring for a four-wheeled companion by making house and office calls to thirsty transports. Buggies vacant of lubrication can guzzle 5 quarts of fresh, forward-looking synthetic oil. Or, tempt the bored bucket to try a new taste with O.L.L.'s high-mileage oils, which are infused with additives designed to rejuvenate age-ridden seals in engines old enough to remember walking themselves to school—uphill, both ways. Relinquishing the old, worn-out filter, your car will rev its engine in satisfied appreciation as the mobile handymen swap in a new, uncorrupted one. The friendly vehicle vets also check and top off the windshield-wiper, radiator, brake, and power-steering fluids before sending the newly slicked roaster safely on its way.

Pro Tip: This course will support students who will benefit from academic experiences during the summer.
Noble Academy was founded to cater to the needs of students with learning disabilities, without limiting the amount of material covered. Rather, the instructors?who are highly trained in teaching children with special needs?use specialized techniques to help children succeed within their disability areas, while also mastering subjects such as science, art, physical education, and social studies. In addition to skills in academic subjects, kids also develop social bonds with their peers in a welcoming environment.
A student doesn't have to attend the school full time to benefit from the Academy's specific instruction techniques. The teachers continue their educational efforts throughout the summer with camps that focus on science and math. Like the day-to-day instruction in the classroom, the camps involve hands-on activities, which may include experimenting with chemical reactions and creating dry ice. The organizers keep class sizes small so that every student benefits from the teacher's personal attention.
Unlike most schools, a child's mind doesn?t shut down as soon as it's summer. Luckily, Exploration DayZ's team steps in during these weeks away from the chalkboard, harnessing children's natural learning powers and pointing them towards new areas. They don?t work out of a regular school set up, though?they eschew traditional four-walled classrooms for the entirety of Greensboro. During day camps, counselors take groups to museums, parks, swimming pools, and other local destinations. Campers will also have the opportunity to immerse themselves in new cultures through activities, such as African dance lessons, that don?t involve loitering at international airport terminals.
Exploration DayZ's commitment to education extends beyond the summer as well. Their knowledgeable tutors work with students during after school programs, helping them complete homework or learn entirely new skills, such as a foreign language.
Food for Life Supreme partners with the University of Art and Logistics of Civilization (UALC) in hope of reversing unhealthy eating by providing organic, healthy spins on comfort foods. The eclectic menu, based on the book Food for Life: Transitional Recipes for Food Combining and Blood Typing, encourages creative, healthy eating and attentiveness to blood type. Stick a fork in the Trinity Salad, a trifecta of red onion, tomatoes, and croutons topped with Twinnette dressing ($3–$5), or sink fork-shaped teeth into the nonigneous Active Volcano sandwich, a preservative-free bread base that overflows with chopped whiting, freedom sauce, grilled peppers, onions, tomatoes, and melted cheese ($7). Entrees include the Croaker dinner, homemade sliced bread topped with bonefish and served with a choice of two sides, such as hush puppies, mac 'n' cheese, or mustard greens ($12).
Though many students come to Mathnasium having fallen behind their classmates, a mathematically advanced child sparked the learning program’s creation. As founder Larry Martinek’s young son, Nic, developed an appetite for higher-level math concepts, Larry found himself developing an entirely new teaching language to explain them in an age-appropriate way. The kind of instincts he sought to build up couldn’t be nurtured by drills and rote memorization. Instead, they required a deeper understanding of the principles at the root of mathematical operations, delivered in a way that grade-school kids could apply throughout their academic careers.
In just a decade’s time, Larry and his team have established Mathnasium centers in most U.S. states and more than a dozen other countries. At each, tutors who earned a 700 or higher on the math portion of the SAT develop custom learning plans for students in grades K–12 based on The Mathnasium Method. The system combines an education strategy of conceptual, tactile, and visual techniques with a curriculum structure that ensures kids can count, think proportionally, and tell the difference between a multiplication sign and a plus sign by scent alone. Tutors allow some time each session to help students with the concepts in their math homework, and the centers regularly check report cards and standardized tests as further measures of progress.
Founded in 1982, The Piedmont School is a place where children who are struggling in a traditional educationl environment can achieve their learning potential. Students in first through eighth grades attend the school's full-day and half-day programs.
