STA 2013 Summer Program-
June 17th - July 19th
We have an exciting Summer Program planned for students entering first through eighth grade. STA’s balance of academic classes in the morning, followed by a fun array of activities in the afternoon, is not only unique, but offered at an incredible value. Students can participate in a full day or customize their program to suit their needs and interests. Take a look at our brochure and if you haven’t already made your summer plans, I hope you will once again send your child to STA’s Summer Program. I truly believe it is one of the best in the Bay area. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again this summer.
