This is my 3rd year at ADVANCE, and I'm still not tired of it! The people there are amazing and kind. The program itself is extremely well-organized. The classes are thorough and you really learn a lot. I would highly recommend this program to anyone!

I've made so many friends over the past three years and I'm very excited for this summer. I recommend this summer program.

This place is awesome. Just make sure your kid brings a tux or a really nice suit for the last dance.
