Academic Summer Classes

Chemistry Prep

Chemistry is one of the hardest science classes that a student will take. There is a lot of information to learn and a lot of math to perform that has to be used and remembered throughout the entire course. It is very easy to get behind in chemistry. This prep class give students chemistry instruction to prepare them for their upcoming chemistry class in school. This class can be expanded for homeschool chemistry credit.

Algebra 1 Prep

Algebra 1 is the hardest math class that a student will encounter. It is also the most important! Some students develop math anxiety in school that becomes a deciding factor in their choice of career. One of the main causes of math anxiety is algebra 1. It builds on itself, and previous material cannot be forgotten. If a student starts to get behind, it is really difficult to catch up. A struggling algebra 1 student might make it through the year with decent grades, but if they struggled the whole year, then they never truly understood the material. A long, hard struggle leaves students feeling exhausted and tired. These bad feelings are associated with math for the rest of their high school and college career and throughout life. Algebra is used throughout calculus and beyond. If a student didn't fully understand the algebra 1 concepts while taking the class, the student will struggle with those same algebra concepts in other math classes. Each future math struggle creates more fatigue, hate, and anxiety. This prep class will give students extra instruction before they start algebra 1, so their chances of success are much greater. This class can be expanded for homeschool algebra 1 credit.

Geometry Prep

Geometry is a different type of math. Many students struggle in geometry because of the algebra they haven't mastered. It also discusses abstract topics and proofs that can confuse students. Understanding geometry is also important for the ACT. This class will introduce new material and review old material. This class can be expanded for homeschool geometry credit.

Algebra 2 Prep

Algebra 2 requires a lot of reviewing. Most students take geometry between algebra 1 and 2. After taking algebra 1, one school year and two summers have passed since most algebra concepts were used. Many students struggle with algebra 2 because they didn't fully understand algebra 1, and it has been so long that they just don't remember. Students will start out school behind if they cannot remember the algebra 1 concepts. This class is a great way to start out and be able to keep up. Algebra 2 is also very important for scoring well on the ACT. This class can be expanded for homeschool algebra 2 credit.

Precalculus Prep

Precalculus is basically algebra 3, so students will be expected to understand algebra 1 and 2 before taking the class. Precal is an advanced math class that will be more complicated. There is also a lot of trig in precal that can be troublesome if students are weak in that area. Getting extra help before school starts will help make this class easier. Overall, precalculus is a great class to take. It will ensure students are knowledgable in algebra and trig, and they will be ready for calculus. Precal is also important for scoring well on the ACT. This class can be expanded for homeschool precalculus credit.

ACT Prep

This 15-hour ACT prep course covers tips and strategies, layout, and key concepts for all 4 subjects on the ACT plus writing if needed! Each student will take a timed test that will be graded and analyzed. Then, students will learn the strategies and layout of the test and work through what they missed or didn't understand. While the main topics are taught as a class, a student will move ahead independently of others. When students are finished with one test, they will move on to another. Students will work through concept drills on key concepts as needed. This is a custom designed course that is unique for every student depending on their strengths and weaknesses. After taking this ACT prep course, the student will be more prepared and less stressed about the ACT. ACT scores usually increase in the range of 1 to 6 points with the average being 3 points. There have been increases up to 13 points and up to a score of 36! We have helped many students score into the 30's to obtain full academic scholarships. These courses include at least 1 timed test and all the materials are included. The students only need a pencil, notebook, and an ACT approved calculator.

Fun Summer Classes

Game Science

Game Science is a class that discusses the importances of playing games on the development of the brain. Games are a great way of improving brain function. A better, faster, and more experienced brain is a smarter brain. We will discuss several games that can be played to increase brain power. We will learn how to play those games, and we will play them during class. We will also learn what part of the brain is being activated and improved during each game and how it will help in real life. This class is similar to a logic reasoning class, which is great for increasing ACT science reasoning test scores.

Inventors

Have you ever wanted to invent something? Maybe you already have but don't know what to do now. This class discusses ways to start out realistically being an inventor and what steps people need to take to bring their ideas to fruition.
