Authentic US Domestic Program
with Varieties of Classes

This is a long-standing original summer enrichment program designed for local commuting students in the neighborhood school district. International students can independently choose classes of their interests, learn in the normal American classroom setting, and interact with the domestic students. This is a public program with open enrollment that is different from those typical study-group based that international students are always together for the same classes without mingling with local students.

Hands-on Learning and
Diverse Culture Immersion

Summer is an opportunity to stay away from any traditional instruction based education. Come to experience hands-on and interactive learning to develop your practical skills.

International students can taste the ways American classes are conducted and how American students learn. They will also gain perspectives toward their upcoming high school and college career. International students can experience more diverse culture from this open-community summer program of a public school district than those hosted by private boarding schools under the closed campus environment.

Academic Guidance and
Residential Advisory

Live-in residential counselors from prestige universities will provide academic and cultural guidance to international students. This enrichment program is wrapped around the curriculum with value-added services and extra-curriculum activities to cultivate student's leadership, independence and self confidence under yet a fun-packed environment.

The program staffs are educators and parents of young adults themselves that are experienced in managing international programs for 30 years. Parents should have high confidence in program staffs that their students will be well taken care of.
