The IDIIL Summer Day Program will be in full session again this summer! Our unique summer program balances academics, relaxation and enjoyment. It starts from structural academic enrichment activities, to creative/collaborative activities, and followed with the fun & competitive activities. IDIIL summer day program promotes academic achievement, creativity, collaboration, team spirit, and  friendship.
 
 
The academic enrichment activities

The academic enrichment activities incorporate the well-known IDIIL fully individualized, discovery-based academic enrichment programs in Math, English, Problem Solving & Thinking Skills, and Writing. Children learn in a challenging, yet low-pressure environment where they can achieve great academic advancement as well as build genuine confidence and good study habits. In this interactive, discovery-based learning environment, the learning is always self-initiated yet guided by experienced instructors.

Creative/collaborative activities

Creative/collaborative activities including creative writing, arts & crafts, creative drama, and magic sci­ence:

  • Magic Science, designed by MIT scientists, has been a very popular program in previ­ous IDIIL Summer Sessions. The program consists of simple science experiments in the form of magic shows. All students will get hands-on and collaborative learning experiences with fun and inspiration.
