  • Best in Class Education Center
    Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress. In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.

It can be hard to know exactly what areas you need to improve upon as an athlete, which is why facilities such as Sammamish Baseball Academy exist. Players here can train with everyone from former college and minor-league players to those who have played in the majors, including Ian Gac. These trainers use RightView Pro video-analysis software to break down a young player's mechanics and compare them to those of current major leaguers, as well as teach them the fundamentals, including calligraphy for future autographs. Young players practice on the 11,500-square-foot facility's clay bullpen mound with three pitching rubbers, in its full-size weight room, and in its four batting cages, which are retractable and open up to help players work on their defensive skills. Two of the cages are equipped with an ATEC pitching machine, which hurls balls and "hey batter batter" chants so players will be prepared for future games. While players train, parents can hang out in a lounge equipped with free WiFi and TV.

  • Chess4Life
    In the years that it took him to achieve the national master title, Elliott Neff learned that chess is more than just a game. He found that math competency, critical thinking, spatial reasoning, and other essential skills are honed as one plays. So, when he sits down to give one of his students a lesson, he thinks of it not as a diversion but, as his company's motto puts it, as "teaching life skills through chess." To help him expand the reach of his philosophy, Elliott has assembled a team of more than 35 local and national chess champions. During group classes and private lessons, these coaches motivate students to exercise their mental agility while learning the correct way to outsmart kings.
