Learning Strategies

A Summer Program for Academic Improvement

Dunn created its Learning Strategies Center in 1973 to serve bright, college-bound students who learn differently. The Learning Strategies Center now offers a unique summer boarding program. Students entering 8th, 9th or 10th grade are invited to apply to this residential summer session.

Questions?

We'd like to help you decide if the summer Learning Strategies program is right for your child.  Please contact Dunn's summer director, Amanda Milholland, at 805-686-0615 or Amilholland@dunnschool.org to discuss your needs and goals.

The Learning Strategies program is wonderful for students who require extra help in learning, since the public school system fails in that aspect for our children.
