Our Winter 2021 courses begin the week of January 18 and run through the week of March 15.

 

Spring 2021 enrichment courses start the week of April 5. Schedule available soon!

Our enrichment instructors are teachers, tutors, and career professionals with in-depth knowledge and experience to share with students. Many have designed the enrichment courses they teach or have extensive experience teaching in a subject area. They are also life-long learners who are always growing their own knowledge as they work to develop and teach interesting enrichment topics.
