Since 1977, Huntington Learning Center has employed a battalion of highly trained tutors to help students triumph over math misgivings and phonics fears. Young scholars ages 5–17 begin their gold-star-seeking journey with an academic evaluation lasting 3.5 to 4 hours to pinpoint their individual needs. After the exam, the center's staff will create a detailed analysis of each student's strengths, personal goals, and spitball-accuracy stats. In one-hour one-on-one sessions, tutors encourage pupils to work at their own pace while focusing on areas in which improvement is needed. Huntington often welcomes parents into its centers of cerebration for complimentary workshops on creating a learning environment free of distractions such as stress and constant gossip about the family dog.
The private West Pioneer Academy distinguishes itself with a sunny open campus, a thriving agriscience program, foreign-language classes, and inspiring opportunities for the arts. Designed to accommodate learning up to grade eight, the academy offers highly specialized learning environments characterized by small classes, an encouraging staff, and modern mainstays such as tablet computers, online engagement, and a strict, school-wide policy that states that cats cannot haz cheeseburgers.
After spending 10 years as a driving range-only facility, Sunrise Golf Course unveiled its 9-hole course in 1984 and invited players to challenge the par 31 layout. Now nearing its 30th birthday, the course still presents a test for players of all skill levels as they drive their golf balls over rolling hills and try to avoid the creek that intersects the land. Thanks to an abundance of fairway-lining trees, the course also offers plenty of shade, keeping players cool and protecting golf balls from sunburn.
The teachers at A New Beginning Preschool give kids ages 2 to 6 an educational roadmap, one where the routes are always changing. The educators at this non-traditional learning center don't believe one single lesson plan can accommodate all children, and not just because favorite crayon color is a hereditary trait. Instead, they individualize their curriculum, drawing from five areas: physical, emotional, social, creative, and language. These come into play during learning sessions and childcare sessions. Under supervision, children explore large learning spaces and engage in activities designed to hone motor and mental abilities.
