  • “I love writing so much, and I don’t want to miss a class at A+!”

    Tancrede R., 4th Grade

  • “I am a parent of two high school students. Both of children come to A+ Summer Programs for many years. The reason they want to come back again and again is because the teachers here are very knowledgeable in their subject areas and also they know how to communicate with kids in a way so that the kids can understand new materials very quickly and effectively. Usually, my son will fight with us for any extra courses outside of classroom. But A+ Program is the one he is always looking forward to be in. I highly recommend A+ Program to any parents, who want their children to get either extra challenges or extra help besides school works.”

  • “My husband showed me Elan’s works and we were so happily surprised that Elan is able to write with such vivid vocabulary and in really clear organization!”

  • “This program isn’t just based on academics. When you come to ASC, you start building friendships and life skills. I improve each year with my Math and English skills, and coming here gives me a head start for the next school year. I have enjoyed coming back each year, and will continue to come back as long as I can.”

    Brandon Lum (Natick High School, Grade 10) – A+ Scholar for 10 years.

  • “For several years, I have come to ASC each summer, and it has helped me gain an edge over my classmates for the upcoming school year. ASC is more than a place to grow academically-it is a fun, rewarding environment that helps you grow as a person.”

    Corey Wong (Newton North High School, Grade 11) – A+ Scholar for 6 years.

  • “A+ has helped me learn new strategies that I can use to tackle the old and new SAT. My teachers are very nice and helpful, and they are always sharing knowledge of tips, books, apps, and strategies that may help me. I have been in this program for five years, and I always find the experience helpful, fun, and fast-paced.”

    Damini Gopal (Brookline High School, Grade 10)- A+ Scholar for 5 years.

  • “What I like most about A+ is being taught concepts instead of just reading them from a textbook. For the SAT, I am learning more than what I could from reading a test prep book on my own. With the strategies I have learned, I feel that a 2400 is achievable!”

    Cindy Zhang (Belmont High School, Grade 11).

  • “Before A+, I was awful at English and standardized tests, but the lessons and extra practice have helped a lot. I’ve improved in grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension. The teachers are encouraging, and have taught me about life after high school and how I can start to prepare for college early in high school.”

    Jessie Yang (Newton North, Grade 9).

  • “I like that the classes are relatively small, so teachers can help people individually more easily. I’ve been able to fortify my Algebra 2 essential skills, specifically those relevant for Pre-Calc next year.”

    Leona Lo (Westwood High School, Grade 11)

  • “The classes really forced me to do a lot of SAT practice problems that allowed me to become familiar with the actual questions on the exam. The teachers are really approachable and not intimidating, and they shared their own experiences with the SAT as well. It’s nice to have a different outlook on the test and hear about what to expect after we complete it!”

    Francesca Mei (Belmont High School, Grade 11)

  • “A+ has taught me many new things that will prepare me for a better future. It prepared me for the ISEE by teaching me about the format and by giving me test-taking skills and strategies to face the exam with confidence.”

    Serena Cai (Woodward School, Grade 8).

  • Vincent shared that his writing teacher has a great sense of humor and creates a lighthearted but rigorous environment where he can truly learn. The teacher also often encourages students to actively participate in class and express themselves. In class, Vincent learned so much about how to express himself in writing, but he also learned how to express himself verbally from his peers during break times, sharing experiences and making lasting friendships. He now voluntarily asks for more classes- he wishes there were two Saturdays a week!

  • My two children started at A+ in February, 2015. Within less than 8 months, their academic English has greatly improved! My 11th grader, Peter, has improved more than 300 points on his SAT after three sessions of study. He has also accumulated very valuable leadership experience through his time volunteering at A+ during this summer.

  • My 10 year-old daughter, Angel was not able to understand the teachers in school when she first started her study in the U.S. early this year, however, through this past half year of study at A+, Angel has caught up with her academic study and she has no problem participating in school now. Angel was very shy to speak when she started school, but she is very confident now to communicate with her teachers and peers. My family is very grateful that A+ has helped our children gain academic advancement and confidence.
