The AIM Summer Enrichment Program is a four-week, in-person program which offers AIM students as well as students from public, private and charter schools the opportunity to reinforce and strengthen essential skills in reading, writing, comprehension and math in grades 1-12.
Specialized small-group instruction by AIM’s highly skilled faculty focuses on each student’s area of academic need. Students engage in interactive projects that build confidence, critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Explore the Globe - Each summer, our Elementary School-aged students circle the globe and interlace exploration of various world regions into essential skills instruction (reading comprehension, writing and math).
AIM's highly qualified staff provides a dynamic learning experience integrating research-based teaching methods with fun and creative activities designed to increase the acquisition and development of reading and math skills and decrease summer learning loss.
Middle School students reinforce language arts and math skills with rotating electives and thematic STEAM and Arts-based projects.
