PSA SUMMER SCHOOL
Summer Program Expertise;
PSA has successfully operated a youth camp for international students since 2004. The camp is an extremely busy program, which combines intensive English study with myriad trips and language-learning activities.
Short summer sessions have also been a vital part of the PSA year-round regular intensive English program. We have successfully adapted curriculum and instruction to meet the particular needs and interests of summer participants.
Based on the success of the current academic year program with High school students, PSA is uniquely qualified to create a customized summer program for similar participants. We will draw upon the knowledge and understanding we have gained this year to create and deliver a dynamic summer program that students will value and enjoy.
