HIGH-ENERGY, HANDS-ON EXPERIMENTATION

Our labs buzz with excitement and innovation. We get noisy at times. We collaborate and learn from new friends. We're guided by high-energy, tech-savvy instructors, and our imaginations soar. Yes, I'll make my own video game. Or learn to program my very own iPhone or Android App. Perhaps I'll code the next big thing in C++ or Java. Maybe I'll design a website or produce a film. This is my camp. I learn at my pace. It's MY internalDrive.

With personalized instruction and never more than 8 students per instructor guaranteed, this is anything but a typical classroom environment. There are no grades here. We take the pressure off so you can get straight to what matters--building a love of learning, bringing your final project to life with unabashed creativity. If the iD Way deems us un-school, well, we wouldn't have it any other way. (Jump to Teen Programs)
