  • Abbott Middle School
    Run by Stanford University's coaches' education trainer Mike Legarza and boasting a camper return rate of 90%, Legarza Basketball Camp develops young dribblers in a structured environment of positive support and fundamental basketball instruction, valuing hard work and effort. Morning camps focus on shooting and ball handling, as orb-bouncers will learn the basics of scoring and protecting the basketball. Players will be divided into teams for the week and play one game per day with a tournament at the end of the week. Afternoon camps concentrate on gameplay, as youngsters will be introduced to gamesmanship and strategy, such as when to feed the ball to the 7-footer in the post and when to feed the ball to the siberian tiger spotting up for a three-pointer.

  • Shipman Swim School
    Shipman Swim School's recipe for a happily paddling child involves positivity, personal attention, and a couple of polar bears. The bears are part of a mural on the deck wall, frolicking with playful otters in a frothy sea. Combined with the soothing 92-degree heat of the indoor pool, the cheerful creatures encapsulate founder Stacy Shipman's commitment to creating a welcoming learning environment for students of all swimming backgrounds. The former competitive swimmer stresses safety and encouragement in her curriculum, imparting confidence to kids who might have previously avoided the deep end. The school's instructors—all of whom are CPR- and first-aid-certified—lead students through a program that builds skills comfortably and gradually. During stage-1 group classes, instructors first acquaint kids with the water through face-immersion exercises, rather than challenging them to shake hands with their own reflections. As pupils progress through stages 2, 3, and 4, they learn kicks, gliding techniques, and strokes ranging from the basic freestyle to the butterfly. The teacher-to-student ratio never dips below 3:1––and most classes are made up of three students and two instructors––ensuring that each swimmer receives individual guidance. The staff also leads private lessons and Parent and Me sessions, which engage toddlers as young as six months in safe games, songs, and movements.

  • GiftedandTalented.com
    As GiftedandTalented.com founder Matthew Mugo Fields told Time magazine in 2015, "Intelligence should be seen as the end goal, not the starting point." To that end, his website's advanced learning programs?developed by Stanford University?weren't created exclusively for children who have already achieved academic success. Using 25 years of ongoing research by Stanford University, the online curriculum uses non-traditional techniques to get students of all levels thinking about academics in more engaging, practical ways which offer real-world application. For instance, a math unit might culminate in a project that asks the student to power a city using different energy sources. Or a lesson on speed and distance might use a space-travel game to demonstrate how quickly asteroids will hit the pilot's spacecraft. Whatever the subject, the curriculum is personalized and adaptive, allowing kids to bypass skills they've mastered in favor of topics they struggle with and helping many kids improve their standardized test scores to more than twice the national average, according to a study done by New York University.

  • Gobeyond Advising
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Other college admissions consultants applied to college before there were even computers and went to middle tier schools. Danielle got herself into the top 5 schools in CA all in the last 5 years and is up-to-date on admissions tricks and trends. She will help each student get into a dream school. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? I provide research into each school's admissions, location, majors, and statistics. Students are expected to bring a resume or a list of all extra curricular activities so that we can write the perfect college essays together catered to the individual's skills and background. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Danielle was tired of seeing students hopelessly research for hours about college admissions, only to stumble upon misconstrued facts and misleading results. She has always been passionate about helping students get into college and grad school and decided to help students by starting a business. What do you love most about your job? I love helping students get into the best schools possible. Through simple essay edits and repackaging an application can go from average to extraordinary and stick out to college admissions professionals.

  • Sylvan Learning Ctr
    Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
