Joe Pinnavaia's students refer to him as a Rosetta stone, encapsulating a wealth of musical knowledge that he translates into easy-to-follow instructions. Joe opts for personal, one-on-one sessions that break down the bad habits and barriers that can keep fledgling axe-wielders from meeting their goals. Classes emphasize speed, coordination, and confidence as students learn to play complicated licks or chord structures with less effort. Once a frustrated student himself, Joe knows that the only way to learn is from a real person and not online videos or the ghost of Muddy Waters that keeps whispering encouragements when you're in the shower.

Darren Ko took his first crack at the SAT in 7th grade as part of a youth talent search program. He qualified for the program by scoring in the top 30 percent of testers—which included high school seniors. Years later, on the actual SAT, Darren achieved a 1590 before moving on to teach SAT classes in college.

Having mastered the test, Darren opened Infiniva Tutoring in 2001 in order to reach more students. The operation has flourished over the years and has branched out past the SAT to prep students for other major tests including the ACT, GMAT, and MCAT. Darren has recruited an all-star team of tutors, most of who have scored in the top one percent on the SAT. They strive to help bridge the gap between students and their individual goals, whether it be getting into a renowned college or beating a wax statue of Einstein in Scrabble.

In the Orchard encourages children and young adults to explore their creative talents in a range of mediums. During the eight weeks of design camp, artisans 4 to 13 years old can spend a day flourishing their crafts in a safe and social atmosphere or can discover new artistic passions, such as whittling abstract toothpicks out of tree stumps. The nonprofit art community engenders an aesthetic spirit and a sense of accomplishment with weekly themes that inspire a potpourri of creative projects and illuminate a variety of artistic methods. In an effort to promote organic workmanship, summer instructors enlighten students on how to sculpt 3-D compositions from recycled materials in the Peace on Art program (July 18–July 22), and aspiring Pollocks enlist acrylic, tempera, colour paint, and ink-filled lawn sprinklers to fashion large-scale masterpieces in the Paint Big session.
