Did you know…

  • Stephanie Wilson of the 2006 NASA Discovery Crew developed an interest in space travel at age 13?
  • Renowned surgeon Dr. Ben Carson dreamed of becoming a doctor before he entered the 5th grade?
  • Condoleezza Rice was a piano prodigy who credits the long hours of practice and pursuit of perfection with her later success?

What do all three have in common? Academic Enrichment. The opportunity for students to learn more – about nature, space, art, music, or any other topic – can light a spark that may change the course of their life!

This summer, Back to Basics Learning Dynamics offers academic enrichment options just right for your student. Make summer count!
