Make Saturday a Great Day for Learning

Saturday Classes for Young People encourage and inspire your child in the pursuit of knowledge and the love of learning. Children blossom in our small classroom settings. Winter and summer programs are 6-weeks long, while spring and fall sessions run 8 weeks. Choose from many classes including; reading, math, academics, STEM/STEAM, cartooning, theater, art, video game development, Minecraft, swimming instruction and even exercise classes for parents.

Kids love the learning experience on a “grown-up” college campus!

Four Seasons of Learning

Jumpstart learning in the new year with W.A.R.M. (Writing, Arithmetic, Reading and More) classes! These courses are designed for students who can benefit from extra instruction.

When spring is in bloom, so is test season. Exam preparation classes guide young students on how to properly study and prepare for their big exams, including Regents Prep and more. The Hofstra Gifted Academy also runs in the spring and fall quarters to provide a positive, supportive learning environment for academically advanced children.

Summer is a great time to S.U.R.F. – Summer University for Reviewing Fundamentals. This 6-week session provides an opportunity for students to refocus on fundamentals, sharpen their academic skills and lay the foundation for success in the following school year.

Attending Fall Saturday Classes for Young People is the absolutely the best way to kick off the school year. Small classes with low teacher-to-student ratios means your child receives personalized attention at the beginning of the school year.
