Summer is here! Where has the time gone? Now is the time to start thinking about your plans to stay ahead of the learning curve throughout the summer. A Smart Summer begins with additional enrichment that you wouldn’t otherwise receive. We offer a lot of different workshops and services for students from 1st grade to 12th grade and even college. Please see below for some of our upcoming workshops. We will be holding a study skills/organization class and a college preparation class later this summer.

Here is an article about how you can prevent the “summer slide” with your kids written by PLZ Co-Owner, Jay Parrish.
