Summer Programs

High Performance Tutoring is proud to offer a series of Summer Academic Programs in a variety of topic areas to help students stay sharp and continue learning during the summer. Our programs are designed to engage student's critical thinking skills by exposing them to fascinating topics they do not learn in school. We give out lots of cool prizes, have competitions, play neat learning games, and have complementary snacks and beverages available.

Students earn a certificate of completion at the end of our courses which look great on college and job applications. Additionally it gives them added motivation to do well in school as they see first-hand some of the great applications of what they are learning. These experiences help students see the big picture and think more long term about their goals.

In addition to our more unusual courses, we also offer PowerUp programs in more academically familiar topics for students enrolled in difficult AP or IB classes in the fall.

Take a look at our list of summer programs below. Please contact us at (801) 508 - 4080 if you are intersted in enrolling your child or if you have any questions. Our most popular courses are offered at multiple times during the summer. We look forward to hearing from you!
