The summer enrichment program at AIM Academy is a four-week long program which offers students in grades K-12 the opportunity to reinforce essential skills in reading, writing, comprehension, and math. The younger camp explores an exciting region of the globe and interlaces the topic into the essentials skills. The older campers have STEAM electives to choose from in addition to reinforcing basic skills. AIM also has college prep programs for 11th and 12th graders.
The Pathway School offers a 6-week Extended School Year (ESY) Program that focuses on each student’s affective, academic, social, communication, and functional needs in various structured learning environments in school and in the community (including supporting their IEP goals).

For many gifted children, finding close friends can be difficult as they don’t always relate to kids at school or in their neighborhood, so summer enrichment is a great opportunity to interact with intellectual peers.
