Temporary Notice - We're under construction!

Welcome to EdBoost!  

Our website is under construction.  We are working to get it back up -- better than ever. In the meantime, if you have questions please send us an email at edboost@edboost.org, call us at 310.559.1991, or text us at 424.209.7208.

The links below will take you to summer enrichment camp listings and sign ups (or just scroll down) and the Pay Tuition link is finally working.  We're still working to get everything looking perfect so please bear with us as we build.

Thanks! -edboost

Summer Enrichment

Summer Enrichment Camps

Although we love summers for vacations and days at the beach, it's also a great time to catch up, keep up, and leap ahead academically.  EdBoost enrichment day camps are intense, fun, and productive.  Students learn new skills, practice old skills, and do a lot of academic work.   

At EdBoost we believe that learning should be fun, but also that a lot of learning --  especially math -- must be explicit.  So, we teach and practice academic materials explicitly (rather than trying to have students "absorb" math through science or other curriculum).  Although there are active and hands-on parts of all of our camps, all of our camps have a strong academic slant and prioritize learning.  In past years, students have finished their camps feeling like they have worked hard and learned a lot -- but also like they've had a good time doing it (and have enjoyed making friends from other schools, too!). And we love that summer allows us to give students the hands-on experiences that they don't always get in school (last year students in grades K-8 experienced all kinds of dissection adventures, and even the squeamish ones ended up loving it!).

All camps run from 9am-3pm, Monday-Friday (except for the CollegeBoost! Workshop which is just two crazy days of essay writing!).

There are scholarships available for all camps and workshops (submit a scholarship form for your family's rate).  

We require full payment at the time of enrollment.  Enrollment is on-going, but we ask you to sign up by June 1st so that we have time to cancel under-enrolled camps.  Camps that are full or have been cancelled will be removed from the list below.  If you can click a link and enroll in a camp, that camp is still accepting students. Camps must have at least 6 students enrolled or they will be canceled. Any enrolled students will receive a full refund for any camps cancelled due to low-enrollment.  Camps that are cancelled due to a COVID related shut-down will also be fully refunded.  Except in cases of EdBoost cancellations, all camps are non-refundable. 

The maximum enrollment in each camp is 10-15 students (cap varies by camp). 

Camps accept students within specified age ranges.  Some camps also have pre-requisites.  If your child is outside the age range but meets pre-requisites, please send us a note (edboost@edboost.org).  We are happy to admit students to camps that are the right fit, even if the grade level is not a perfect fit.  

Title Camp Dates: Grades (refer to the grade your child will enter in the Fall): Prerequisites Description
GeometryBoost! Jun-17-2024 to Jun-21-2024 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th Algebra I (in school or EdBoost camp)

We've designed GeometryBoost! as an intro to high school geometry, with a strong emphasis on the logical and definitional foundations that all geometry is based on.

WritingBoost! (Essay Writing) Jun-24-2024 to Jun-28-2024 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Can read/write (basic)

Writing is an essential life skill -- and in order to write well, we need instruction, practice, and feedback.

WritingBoost! is a week-long day camp that focuses on various types of essay writing as well as vocabulary, grammar, usage, and style.

AlgebraBoost! Jun-24-2024 to Jun-28-2024 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th Times tables

Algebra is the foundation of most high school math, a core part of the ISEE, PSAT, and SAT, and a critical part of the high school exit exam.  In other words: students need to master algebra.

College Application Workshop CLASS FULL Jul-01-2024 to Jul-02-2024 12th

Did you promise yourself that you'd finish your college applications and essays this summer, before the madness of senior year begins? Let us help you stay ahead of the curve.

MythologyBoost! (Focus on South Asian Mythology) Jul-08-2024 to Jul-12-2024 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Can read/write (basic)

Every year we do a new MythologyBoost!  In prior years students have studied, explored, and performed The Odyssey, The Iliad, The Aeneid, and Egyptian Mythology.  

MythologyBoost! and Hands-on History (Focus on Greek Mythology) Jul-08-2024 to Jul-12-2024 1st, 2nd, 3rd Can read/write (basic)

The best part about learning to read is gaining the ability to explore a wide range of stories -- but when you're a beginning reader, the most interesting books are still too difficult and the books that you can read (and get through) tend to be too silly or babyish.  Focusing on mythology from around the world, our campers will get to experience a range of great stories, with a full cast

Algebra II Boost! Jul-15-2024 to Jul-19-2024 Algebra I (in school or EdBoost camp)

AlgebraBoost! II  is designed for students entering Algebra II in the fall. Like AlgebraBoost! and GeometryBoost! students will review/learn the major skills from the first semester of the course (Algebra II). This is a great camp to get a leg up on this difficult math course. Algebra II is the math course where even students who really get math really start to struggle.

StoryBoost! (Creative Writing) Jul-15-2024 to Jul-19-2024 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Can read/write (basic)

Writing is an essential life skill -- and in order to write well, we need instruction, practice, and feedback.  And, there's more to writing than just essays.  Fiction and creative essays are critical parts of our culture.  And producing those works of writing can be a wonderful way for children and teens to express themselves.

Fraction/DecimalBoost + Forensic Science Jul-22-2024 to Jul-26-2024 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Times tables

Most elementary school students master computation with whole numbers -- but many struggle with fractions and decimals. The processes are similar; the basic skills are the same.  And yet, almost every middle school student we see at EdBoost needs to go back to 4th and 5th grade math material and relearn how to compute with fractions and decimals.

ComputerBoost!: Coding & Web Design Jul-29-2024 to Aug-02-2024 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th Can read/write/do addition/subtraction

We all know that computing is the future. And, we know that our kids love games and screens.  So, how do we teach our kids to be the folks behind those wonderful games and screens?

ComputerBoost! is a great place to start.

Computer programming requires three main skills:

1) The ability to think through a problem and break it down into logical steps.

PreCalc/CalculusBoost! Jul-29-2024 to Aug-02-2024 10th, 11th, 12th Algebra II (in school or EdBoost camp)

This class is designed to prepare students for Calculus.  It necessarily includes a review of pre-calculus topics to make sure that students solidly understand the foundational skills they need to do well in calculus. Students entering pre-calculus are welcome - as they get an overview of what they will learn this year and what those skills will build to the next year.

Advanced Math + Hands-on Physics Aug-05-2024 to Aug-09-2024 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th Times tables

In this post online-school era, almost every student we see has some math gaps.  Our math program is completely individualized.  Every student takes a pre-test and we focus on the skills that that student needs.  From long-division, to fractions, to negative numbers, we will fill in those gaps as needed and then launch into pre-algebra and algebra if the kids are ready for it!

MythologyBoost! (Greek Mythology: The Iliad) Aug-05-2024 to Aug-09-2024 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th Can read/write (basic)

For our younger students, we are restarting our MythologyBoost! series where it began, with The Iliad

Students will read and re-enact a version of The Iliad learning all of the incorporated Greek Myths along the way. Building the set will include creating a Trojan Horse and all of the weapons used in the epic battle to reclaim Helen of Troy.
