Explore Our Summer Enrichment Courses and Workshops

We know summer is typically about soccer camps and swimming pools, but we believe it can also be a time to make significant academic strides.

Experts say kids lose up to 60% of the previous year’s material each summer, a phenomenon known as “brain drain.” Math and reading comprehension are the most affected subjects, and material recovery takes about a month at the beginning of the next school year.

This summer, break the cycle and train your student’s brain at Sage! Choose from our customized one-on-one and small-group tutoring, academic workshops in math, reading, and writing, or get a jump start on test prep with our boot camps for the SSAT, ACT, and SAT. You can count on our caring and experienced staff to help your student build skills and confidence for the year ahead.
