Our after school and summer camp programs (Science Enrichment and Academic Program(SEAP) for elementary ages, Leaders of Tomorrow (LOT) for teen boys ages 11-15 and Seeking Individual Self-Expression Through Spirituality ( SISTAS ) for teen girls ages 11-15) inspire students to pursue academic excellence, to build self-confidence, to develop leadership skills and to discover their unique gifts and talents.
