Dunn School has been a leader in learning strategies instruction since 1973. For over four hours a day, the learning strategies faculty and programming focuses on helping campers strengthen their academic, study, organizational skills, and strategies through an approach that improves their confidence, optimism, self-awareness, and ability to independently manage a college prep workload successfully.
In the afternoon and evenings, students have fun engaging in a variety of activities on and off-campus including swimming, drama, photography, surfing, hiking, rock climbing, marshmallow roasts, and many more. Did we mention that campers enjoy 3 gourmet nutritious meals a day in our dining hall or at one of the many picnic tables under the live oaks?
Many Summer Academy students return to the Learning Strategies program to experience the balance of a challenging academic summer program combined with enriching social and outdoor activities along California’s scenic central coast. To learn more visit our website or download a brochure.
