Our Enrichment Programs

Our enrichment classes will allow students to engage in small-group discussions and improve reading, writing, and math skills with world-class instructors. Classes are offered during the week and on weekends at our Carmel Valley and 4S Ranch offices, as well as online.

Brainiacs – Reading & Writing Program

Reading and writing are foundational skills that are sure to help a student in school, extracurriculars, and future standardized tests. They are also skills that are best learned through focused practice and detailed feedback. That’s why we created Brainiacs classes, weekly classes that serve students in 5th-8th grade. They offer motivated students the chance to increase their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills.

Reading and Rhetoric Seminars

Most of our test prep classes are designed for students who are in at least 10th grade, although we have made exceptions (based primarily on the level of math the student has completed as well as the student’s motivation).

We do think that younger students should be building skills and working toward success on the SAT/ACT/PSAT. But our experience tells us that the best way for students of that age to do so is to improve their reading, writing, and critical thinking skills–skills that are foundational to all sections of the tests. That’s why we created these pre-SAT Reading and Rhetoric Seminars as part of our Enrichment classes.

Math Bridge Class

Our Bridge classes are small-group, online classes run by our senior instructors, specifically designed to provide extra time and concentrated practice on foundational skills that many – if not most – students find more challenging: math concepts and essay writing. Class sizes will remain small so students can ask questions and receive individualized attention.

Essay Writing Bridge Class

Our Bridge classes are small-group, online classes run by our senior instructors, specifically designed to provide extra time and concentrated practice on foundational skills that many – if not most – students find more challenging: math concepts and essay writing.
