What is Inno All About

At Inno, they want students to enjoy learning in its purest form. This means no tests, no homework, no grades. Simply students discovering how the different subjects meet at the crossroads and intertwine to explain the workings of the real world. In alignment with this goal, the curricula that the Inno team writes are designed to introduce their campers to areas of knowledge they would not otherwise have the opportunity to explore in public schools, such as their world mythology and rocket science courses.
Additionally, they seek to promote a balance lifestyle to their campers at the Inno Summer Institute, and as counselors and teachers, serve as relatable and approachable figures for the kids to help them build their social skills and gain helpful insight for their future years.

What Does Inno Offer

The primary service we provide is their 2 week long educational summer camp, for which they offer extensive financial aid. The cost of tuition is the price your family can reasonably afford, as they are committed to making sure every student who wants to attend can come, regardless of financial circumstances. Visit their website by clicking their logo above and head to the financial aid section for more details.

They also plan on introducing other community giving, education oriented programs, such as a grant program to fund field trips for elementary school classes!
