Overview

Our goal is to prepare our students for rigorous Calculus classes. The curriculum covers topics from Trigonometry, Vectors, Analytical Geometry, Limits and continuity.

Session 1: June 8 - July 3, 2020.

Session 2: July 13 - August 7, 2020.

All sessions will run Monday to Friday, 1:00pm to 4:00pm PST.
