Summer 2021

Starts June 21

With the beginning of the Spring season this past weekend, it is almost hard to believe that we have managed to work, learn, and socialize from home for a whole year. Peninsula Academy continues to provide high-quality tutoring, test prep, and college consulting online via Zoom, the world’s leading platform for virtual learning. Our rigorously selected, high-caliber tutors and counselors include graduates of MIT, Stanford, Harvard, Columbia, UPenn, Duke, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and USC, as well as former and current school teachers and college professors.

We have been closely following government and healthcare guidelines regarding reopening in-person services. With the recent decline in COVID-19 cases in LA County, we will start providing in-person and online options as early as April, with full respect for individual preferences. The health and safety of our students, teachers, and staff remain front and center of all our actions and concerns.

Whether our tutors and counselors work with students in person or online, they bring the same expertise, depth of knowledge, and commitment to student learning. And our goal remains the same: to help students continue to learn, thrive, and realize their full potential in spite of these challenging times. 

Test Prep | 6/21 - 8/12 (8 weeks) 

Students will practice for the ACT/SAT using the COGNOS methodology developed at Peninsula Academy. This system has students practice with real ACT/SAT tests from past years to build mental stamina and develop effective test-taking strategies. Tutors break down the sections of the test and teach students how to think and reason the way test makers do.

Leave the stress of application season behind and start looking toward your acceptances! 

College Transition (High School Grads)

How well a student transitions in the first year of college is one of the best predictors of success during college and timely graduation.
