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.
Under the tutelage of former Tar Heel and Dean Smith acolyte Scott Cherry, the High Point Panthers men’s basketball squad looks to wreak havoc in the Big South Conference inside the recently-renovated Millis Center. Set adrift in a sea of white and purple, Panther-backers join the charge as junior guard Shay Shine busts up hoops while freshman forward Du'Vaughn Maxwell racks up rebounds and blocks. Groupon-holders can opt for games against NC Central, Big South foes Winthrop or Presbyterian, or the ESPN BracketBusters mystery team, with possible opponents ranging from a mid-major powerhouse to a painful-to-guard collection of five saguaro cactuses.
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.

The Professional Bartending Institute sets aspiring bartenders apart from the pack with in-depth courses that cover all aspects of the job. Certified bartenders helm hands-on workshops in a simulated-bar atmosphere, honing students’ speed and organizational skills while teaching them to mix cocktails, comply with state alcohol laws, and provide customer service that goes beyond sticking their hand in drinks to ensure they’re wet. Once students have completed their training and obtained their bartending certificates, the center’s job placement experts help place them in bar settings that suit their credentials and personalities.
The Mad Platter is a spacious, comfortable studio where friends and family can paint, stencil, and sponge imagery that's wildly innovative, beautiful, or commemorates the ancient Athenian victory at Marathon onto pottery ready to be filled with flowers, pencils, or wishes. Hundreds of pottery pieces—including small tiles ($4), small figurines ($8), mugs ($10), and large handled serving platters ($45–$56)—rest atop neat wooden shelves, coyly awaiting the brushstrokes of a fetching paint-slinger. After choosing your ceramic canvas, comb the studio's collection of bristly utensils and its vat of around 100 pigments to dash and daub to your hungry heart's content. Upon completion, you'll entrust your suddenly vivid earthenware to a friendly kiln master, who will glaze and fire the piece for pickup in about 7–10 days—before its debut on a lonely mantle or gifty transfer to Grandma's dinner table.
