Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age.

I was very impressed with the campus and the institution. It was a well-oiled machine... Wow!"- Delia H., Parent, College of William & Mary
"Not only was my son's instructor knowledgeable, but he was able to teach to the students; meaning he was able to get through to my son in a way that had not been done before.
