Summer is a great time to explore, meander, create and lose oneself in doing something fun. International Ivy creates classes based on what would love to learn like app creation, graphic design, robotics, performing arts, weird science and so much more. Classes are designed to be hands-on where kids learn by doing. There are plenty of choices across so many disciplines so kids can explore all that they are interested in. All of the sessions are weekly so parents can sign up for one or more weeks. Parents can also choose full day or half day options.

Please find a list of classes offered by International Ivy for the summer of 2018 on their website at http://www.iisummer.com/somerset/.
