For Students Who Want to Catch Up or Move Ahead

From highly gifted students who find a regular classroom setting too limiting to students with learning differences who need a specialized teaching approach to shine academically, we work with students to maximize both their learning and self-confidence.


Mastery Learning – Our Students Learn How to Learn

We teach students to 80% (B) or higher level of mastery before moving forward. This allows us to individualize the pace and teaching method to address a wide range of learning needs.

With our Directors each having 25 years of experience, we understand how to help move your student one step closer to his/her goals in all areas of life.

We offer a competitive college preparatory, honors, and AP curriculum. Our UC-approved courses exceed California education standards and college entrance requirements. Our graduates are often admitted to UC and CSU programs as well as private colleges throughout the United States.
