Summer Camps

Since we first began offering summer “camps” in 2004, ME has gained recognition for its exceptional summer programs in language arts, mathematics, test preparation, and college admissions.

Students are carefully assessed and attend small group classes (capped at no more than 6 students per group in Learning Camp and College Admissions Prep Camp and 8 students in other camps) customized to meet their academic needs and to prepare them for the challenges of the coming year. 

If you are looking for rigorous test prep, a head start with your college applications or a fun and educational learning experience for younger students, we would be happy to see you this summer!

Rachel and Alec are wonderful teachers, and they helped Brisa to improve a lot over the four weeks. Brisa loved them and was very happy in the camp.  I appreciate the details that Rachel and Alec put into the report. They match my observation of Brisa. The recommendation is especially helpful to show Brisa and motivate her to continue improving. Thank you.
