A Summer for Creating, not Reacting

We’re pleased to announce our summer 2021 programing, reimagined for post-pandemic education needs. Our children have been through so much over the past school year and we may truly not know how much learning loss has happened. Our Summer 2021 programming is designed up to be a creative space for students to find success:

  • Universal Access: Our instruction is inclusive for all students, including students with limited language abilities and neuro-diversity. We plan on every student succeeding from the beginning!
  • Processed Based: Instruction is based upon a process rather than just rote memorization. What your child learns over the summer will carry through the rest of their lives as a strategy, not just a random fact.
  • Small Groups: Group size is capped to ensure that there is a low student to teacher ratio. We’re currently planning on no more than 5 students per group in session and remote. Not because of public health measures, but because its the best way to educate.
  • Teacher Facilitated: Your children are intelligent! We use their skill sets and background knowledge to help expand what they’re able to do rather than have them listen to the teacher tell them what to do.
  • Neuro-Educational: Our curriculum is fluid based upon the needs of the student and what is being studied in neuro-psychology so we can teach on how the brain learns. We take the big name intervention teaching strategies and bring them regular teaching so everyone can find success!

Enrollment FAQs

What flexibility are you offering with the pandemic?

IES will continue our learning flexibility model. Should there be a reason to stop in person services, we would be able to move to remote learning and come back when it’s safe. We’re following current Santa Barbara County guidance to school cohorts.

What safety measures are you taking?

We’re following strict cleaning procedures, as well as self monitoring students and staff to make sure they are well. Each student will also receive their individual set of supplies to minimize sharing. We’re also spacing everyone out to 6 feet.

How and when can I request a refund?

You may request a full refund in writing prior to June 18, 2021 for any reason, less any financial fees. 50% of your fees will be refunded until the June 5, 2021, less financial fees and after July 4, there will be a 20% refund, less financial fees, unless you can find a stand-in.

Can my child move classes after the program starts?

Yes, if there is room in another group. With all that has been of the past year, we foresee the need to be flexible, especially as we gain a clearer understanding of where our children are functioning in their academics. As part of our universal access, we plan on supporting all learners in the groups!

Will you use the CPM Math books?

No! We use a variety of sources to provide the conceptual foundation with direct instruction so students can find mastery with their math skills. Since local school districts do use CPM, we will use the scope and sequence as a guide of what to teach, but now how to teach the concepts.

This all sounds to be too good for the price. What’s the catch?

Education is essential! We believe in keeping our prices as fair as possible to allow as many children as possible to receive a quality education!

If you are not able to pay in full, please check out Pay Pal’s pay in 4 credit offer when you check out with Pay Pal. You will be billed over 2 months.
