The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
Wake Forest Archery, the archery club at Wake Forest University, began in 2010 with 10 members and was on its way to becoming the fastest chartered organization in the university's history. Then, the club's storage shed was robbed, forcing its members to take a hiatus. The following semester, after receiving additional funds and generous donations, the club was back on its feet. It has since grown to more than 100 members, each of whom participates on a varsity or recreational archery team. In addition to regular practices and competitions, the club hosts an archery camp, open to those of all experience levels.

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.
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.
