3 Steps Ahead Summer Program’s purpose is to engage students in enrichment activities which advance their skills and understanding in the areas of reading and writing, math and science. We also strive to provide students with opportunities to develop character, learn valuable life skills, make new friends, and discover new interests.
Scholarships are available on a first come first serve basis. Operation Xcel has raised reading levels of students attending all 6 weeks of the program by as much as an entire year during past summer camps. Increases in math achievement and science have also been significant. As a three stranded program, your youth will eXcel to new levels, academically, socially and emotionally.
