Summer Program

Kids Running


Our "3 Steps Ahead Summer Program" engages students in academic enrichment activities that advance their reading, writing, math, and science skills. The program also allows students to develop character, learn valuable life skills, make new friends, and discover new interests. This summer program has successfully raised the reading levels of students attending all 6 weeks of the program by as much as one full year. Students have realized significant advancements in math and science due to our focus on STEM and individualized tutoring and mentoring by certified and experienced teachers. As a three-pronged program, your child will excel academically, socially, and emotionally.

Programs Offered by Operation 3 Steps Ahead Summer Program

The 3-Steps Ahead Summer Enrichment Program is not just a summer program-it's a fantastic way for your child to spend the summer. We don't just teach, we inspire. We assess and place children in level-appropriate reading, math, and science classes to ensure strong academic development. But we don't stop there, we encourage each student to reach for the stars and to work above their grade level when possible. Our highly qualified and certified teachers work individually with each student to help them sustain and increase their growth in STEAM-based courses. The curriculum follows the standard course of study by the NC Department of Public Instruction. At the end of the summer, post-assessments are given to ensure a comprehensive evaluation of your child's progress. Parents and teachers at the schools of Operation 3-Steps Ahead students report that our program provides better results than Sylvan, Huntington, and Mathnasium and at a better price - it's free!

Operation 3 Steps Ahead Summer Program also features arts and crafts, family-friendly movie viewing, exciting indoor and outdoor games, and off-site recreation such as swimming and bowling.

Applications will be available during May 2024. here
