University of San Francisco

Students visited the University of San Francisco today. After a tour of the campus, students went to the Golden Gate Bridge to take pictures.


Happy Birthday Zach!

Yesterday, we celebrated Zach’s 17th birthday! Students enjoyed cupcakes from Cupcakin in Berkeley and Zach had “Happy Birthday” sung to him in French, Spanish, Russian, Greek, Turkish, Chinese, Japanese, and English! It was quite an exciting night!

Union Square and the Westfield Mall

Yesterday, students went again to San Francisco where they enjoyed a sunny day in downtown at Union Square and The Westfield Mall. Students were able to shop, go to China Town, and enjoy live performances in the square!


San Francisco

Yesterday, students went to San Francisco! They were able to see Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39, as well as Ghirardelli Square and China Town. Students also enjoyed ice cream at Dreyer’s, the seals on the bay, a scary dungeon tour, and the famous In and Out Burgers. Check out the photos!



Downtime before the Second Diagnostic Test

Yesterday, students enjoyed games and a trip to the cinema in order to relax before the big day–their second SAT Diagnostic Test. This weekend, we will be taking trips to San Francisco! Stay tuned for those photos.


Second day of classes and trip to Cream!

Students have continued trudging along through the SAT Prep! Today students had their first Essay Writing course. Teachers Kate and Katie helped them through the SAT Essay section. We played board games in the lounge and took the kids on a trip to Cream in Downtown Berkeley for ice cream. Students then had their evening College Counseling session.

UC Berkeley Tour

Today was another action packed day! Students woke up fresh and early for breakfast followed by a SAT Diagnostic Exam. The exam lasted more than three hours! Following this, students went to lunch then went on a tour of UC-Berkeley. We got to learn the history behind the seal, the bell tower, and even the nickname “Cal” Berkeley has adopted over the years. Afternoon activities included a bookstore visit and sports in the quad.


We’re all Here!

All students have arrived at UC-Berkeley! Students enjoyed fun ice breakers and a quick orientation! Following orientation, students enjoyed cupcakes and a beautiful sunset! Happy Birthday Aidan! Tomorrow will be the first full day of class!
