Programs during COVID-19​

2020 & 2021 will be summers we will never forget! Our on-campus programs were a great success! We worked closely with various local, state and national agencies to formulate a plan to provide students a bit of normalcy at a very unusual time. We would like to thank parents for their incredible support and confidence in our organization, and we want to thank our students for helping to keep all of us safe by following all of the COVID-19 safety guidelines and protocols. 

As we move forward for summer 2022, we will continue to offer information and guidance to our families as the wellbeing, safety, and health of our students and staff is always our number one priority. The cornerstone of our organization for almost 30 years has been safety, and it is our number one priority and concern.
