Momentum is an immersion experience. Our camps are overnight camps, five or six days in duration, hosted on a college campus. We equip high school students to succeed academically and personally. We offer two distinct camps, Foundations Camp, for rising 9th, 10th or 11th graders, as well as our flagship Momentum Camp, for rising 10th, 11th, 12th, or recent grads preparing to enter college. Each camp offers extensive training for the PSAT, SAT, and/or ACT, presenting such lessons in the larger context of one's educational, personal, and even professional goals. We know how to help students improve their performance on these standardized tests, and we insist that our students think and plan beyond merely achieving higher test scores!
We pride ourselves on accomplishing in one week what may take months in a conventional classroom setting, and having FUN while we're at it.
The target audience for Momentum isn’t students who are struggling nor is it students who 'have it all together'. Our audience, the students we can tremendously serve, are the students who simply want MORE, who desire to better themselves. The students who sense they have more to accomplish, more to give, to offer. The students who suspect there are meaningful contributions in life that are theirs to make.
Momentum exists to unleash the potential of high school students, equipping them to successfully transition to college and life beyond formal education.
How do we realize such lofty goals? Our students learn, experience, and practice FLOW.
