- Academic and Arts Summer Camp for students entering grades 4 – 8 is also offered. We provide academic instruction in core subjects designed to meet your student’s specific needs. We integrate the teaching of effective executive skills. Creative activities in art and computer are also included to enhance the student’s overall experience.

"I have three pieces of advice," said Jim Caccamo, Ed.D., a long-term Kansas City area educator, the ASOP commencement speaker.
"First be grateful! We do a lot of good things in our lives and we should focus on those good things. People care about you."
"Second, Learn to Listen. It is important to make eye contact, focus on understanding, show attention through body language, and listening without trying to fix things. Sometimes people just want someone to listen."
"Finally, have someone who you can talk with, and know when to ask for help."
The Carriage Club in Kansas City, Missouri, was the site of this year's graduation ceremony and dinner.
