Since its inception in 1998, APLUS Morning Camp has become the most popular program of its kind among students and parents. These programs are designed for 3rd through 10th grade students to advance their skills and provide them with academic challenges over the summer. Each three-week session allows students to preview the math and English courses they will take during the fall semester. These classes are highly focused on teaching the skills students need in order to be academically successful. Students who completed these enrichment courses have demonstrated a high level of confidence and achievement in their schools.
Many levels of mathematics & English courses are offered. Students are placed in an appropriate level based on the results of their placement test, which is required of all new students.
Since the Summer of 2010, a new course "Intensive Essay Writing Practices" was added to provide student opportunities to focus entirely on writing practices. Both parents and students have very positive feedback on this new course. APLUS has since added this course to its spring and falll semester. For more information, please take a review at the description of writing workshop.
