Each summer the Learning Center at the Gillam-Grant offers many learning opportunities for our community. We offer a variety of Summer Camps from Robotics and Programming to Pet Care and Cooking.
We are open Monday-Friday by appointment for your summer tutoring needs. Tutoring can help prevent summer learning loss or help students pass their August regents.
