Summer Program Photos
Summer 2012 was a great success! Take a look at photos from this summer's programs.
The Institute for Educational Advancement and h-bar tutoring have combined their efforts to ensure that more bright, inquisitive young people in the Pasadena and Los Angeles area have the opportunity to expand their horizons and explore new content. IEA / h-bar Academy will provide exciting supplemental courses to promote higher level thinking skills, creativity and community.
We are excited to introduce special scheduling options for homeschoolers throughout the school year! In addition to the ongoing after-school and weekend classes, several classes are offered at 10:00am on weekdays to coincide with homeschooling families' schedules.
Summer Session I: June 17 - July 5, 2013
Summer Session II: July 15 - August 2, 2013
We are also excited to announce a new “Genius Day” series! Genius Day is a day of deep learning that gives students the opportunity to learn and work with an expert in the field as they uncover the contributions of a person we consider a genius. Our first genius will be Charles Darwin, and the day will focus on his life and work. Dr. Daniel Lewis will be leading this day of inquiry and fun Saturday, June 1, from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM at The Huntington Library in San Marino. Take a look at the Genius Day flier here. For more information, please contact us at 626-403-8900 or Academy@educationaladvancement.org. Click here for the Genius Day registration form.

The Institute for Educational Advancement offers a summer Apprenticeship Program that links gifted high school students from across the country with Mentors who advance each participant's skills through the application of knowledge and exposure to real world experiences. These life lessons in personal and intellectual development are invaluable to their growth and assist them in making pertinent connections for the future.
The 2013 Apprenticeship Program offers two sessions in Los Angeles:
Session I: June 16 - July 13, 2013
Session II: July 21 - August 10, 2013
The Institute for Educational Advancement's Caroline D. Bradley Scholarship awards highly gifted 7th grade applicants with a four-year scholarship to a high school that fits their individual intellectual and personal needs. Applications for the 2013 Scholarship are available, and the deadline is approaching.
The Institute for Educational Advancement's pioneering Yunasa and Yunasa West summer camps unite highly able 10- to 14-year-olds with experts in the social and emotional development of gifted children. In a nurturing setting, campers explore and grow the intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social and physical aspects of their lives.
