Kids Children Youth Educational Camps in Orange County, California

A+ Ability Plus K-8 School 
Kindergarten through 8th Grade. "Ability Plus is a Private School that teaches from the viewpoint that the data being taught is for students to use in life, not just to memorize and pass a test. Getting marks of 'A' is a useless action unless the student can then apply what was studied to improve his life or the lives of others. At Ability Plus we expect and maintain a high standard of achievement from our students in all the basics such as reading, writing, math, phonics, history, science and the arts. Each student is given an individualized program that aligns with the child’s own educational and personal goals. Their interests are fostered and they are taught how to become responsible and actively involved in their education, thus making sure they do succeed. Because of our high standards, children who transfer from other schools to our school are given a thorough, individual analysis and program which addresses any and all areas of their education that may have been missed or might need to be filled in. At Ability Plus, the students master their subjects 100% before moving on to a higher level. When students are held to that standard, their overall progress is faster because they don’t have confusions from their earlier studies."  Tustin
Acacia College Preparatory Academy 
Elementary, Jr. High & High School. "Our primary purpose and focus is to develop the God-given humanity of young people by building their character and equipping them with the ability to be fully useful to the Lord and society. The Acaciawood motto, 'Strong in Character, High in Standard', best expresses this philosophy. We believe that a strong character is the foundation for all lasting human success and accomplishment. Our hope is that by using various tools we can train and develop the character and morality of our students and inspire them to attain to their highest potential, thereby producing young people prepared and equipped to meet life's challenges. The primary tool we use to develop character is demanding academic rigor. This serves to train the mind, teach goal setting and achievement, diligence in work ethic, and perseverance to attain high standards of personal development. Acaciawood also uses the AGATE Society, academic competitions, extra-curricular activities, and athletics to teach character traits and inspire students to excellence. We focus our curriculum on the core subjects. In high school we offer a college preparatory curriculum and honors level course in nearly every discipline. In junior high school we teach study skills in all subjects in conjunction with core material, and we use writing across the curriculum to enhance the comprehension and articulation of learned subject matter in all courses."
