“A wonderful way for a teen to learn something and have fun during the summer! It is hard to find programs aimed for High Schoolers and I was thrilled that the DAE had them. My child loved her class- money well spent”
“Ezra told us repeatedly that these weeks were the best of his life! He was encouraged to be creative and the teachers were so flexible in helping him achieve that. Thanks for an awesome summer”
“My daughter was definitely inspired by what she learned. She came home animated and excited to keep learning!”
