At Sylvan Learning Center’s award-winning network of more than 900 locations, state-certified and Sylvan-trained teachers steer pupils with a personalized tutoring approach through such fraught study areas as reading, math, and SAT prep. Staffers first run through a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews to discern students’ strengths and uncover their blind spots, such as the persisting belief that racecar is spelled the same backwards and upside-down. Each month, Sylvan confers with parents and provides a comprehensive look into their student's progress. In ensuing tutoring sessions, one-on-one teachers bolster focus and encourage risks conducive to learning, vanquishing budding scholars’ confusion with personalized learning plans.

Burgeoning artists in their junior and senior years of high school spend four days immersed in the topics of their choice, picking from disciplines such as interior design, game arts, and photography. Sketching, filming, and whisking meringue by day, the students work hard before shopping, dining, pool partying, or beret adjusting at night. Pupils who opt for lodging rest up for back-to-back, intensive courses in the local Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites, in between a packed agenda designed to proffer a taste of art school life.

At TIKITUM, fun sits at the top of a pyramid of priorities, followed by art, science, nature, and sensory integration. Yet each of those priorities gets its due and then some inside the exploration space, which engages kids' five senses with different hands-on displays and activities. Kids ages 3 to 7 can come by for an open house, or attend an art class in the LAB. The classes might blend science and art with play, for instance by exploring the lights and colors of outer space. There are even classes for children with special needs such as autism and ADD.
