All Adult Staff
Our instructional staff is comprised of adults 18 years and older. Our other instructors are mostly graduate and undergraduate students who are majoring in computer science, computer engineering, performing arts, graphic design and other related fields. We often also have high school juniors and seniors who serve as assistants, though they are never in charge of teaching our curriculum. Our thorough training program and selective hiring process ensures that all of our instructors are well-qualified and ready to help your child grow.
