Advanced Elementary Instruction

We’re serious about education. Working with over 80 elementary schools, we’ve observed two gaps in almost every child’s knowledge:

  • how numbers and variables work together in expressions and equations — the language of mathematics;
  • how to write complex sentences — critical for writing paragraphs and essays.

When these gaps aren’t closed, students fail. 1/3 of high school students fail Algebra, and 3/4 of high school students can’t write with any proficiency.

These skills are hard to learn later, but easy to learn early.

Your child will want to do amazing things in the future. Our 6 week program goes well beyond what regular school offers, with advanced lessons in Algebra and Writing, as applied to Literature, Science, and History.

Fun, Social, and Supportive

Our SKIES technology brings a social element to remote teaching. It’s interactive, media-rich, and contains so many ways to communicate.

Instruction is engaging. We explain through live text, live drawings, and live video. After each segment, students submit work, and we grade it and provide feedback within minutes. This deliberate practice has a powerful effect — students improve, and quickly.

Students can work independently, in groups with their friends, or in small groups with the instructor. The social and supportive atmosphere will keep your child motivated and learning.

It Really Works — They’ll Love Learning!

S3 helped improve state test results across an entire school.

Not only did students learn math, they ended up loving it. They worked through recess to solve problems. Many students looked forward to the state test. “This is the first time I’ve seen them want to take that test,” said a teacher.

Meet Your Instructors

The S3 instructors are top teachers with a passion for education and plenty of experience. Your child will receive their expert guidance and support throughout the day. You’ll be amazed how much they’ll learn, and how much they’ll enjoy it!

Parents and Students Loved S3 Last Summer

Tuition

Tuition is $1,500. Flexible payment plans are available. We offer a 50% discount to children of teachers or principals.

Because S3 engages students synchronously from 8 am to 2:30 pm daily, many parents have deducted S3 on their taxes as dependent care. Under the 2021 American Rescue Plan, this means you could get 50% of the cost of S3 reimbursed.
