California Learning Center offers our Santa Barbara area students a variety of options during the summer. From college planning workshops for our rising seniors to our brand new Middle School Skills & Review Week! We’re available for private tutoring too.



Watch for New Dates - Summer 2024

 By popular demand, Santa Barbara families have the chance for their middle-school aged student to come in for our week-long Skills & Review Workshop. Taught by a credentialed teacher, we provide small group, interactive review of Writing and Language Arts, as well as Math and some cool, fun topics to keep everyone engaged. Many students need to step up their skillset post pandemic, and that’s where we step in. One week of basics in an inviting learning environment will help them be ready for the new school year. Back to school is Friday, August 19th. Space is limited, so sign up now.

Watch for New Dates -
Summer 2024

One of the hardest parts of writing those college essays is brainstorming and getting started. This one-day workshop addresses what they need to draft a compelling essay. Led by our college counselor and coach, Wendi, students will be guided to think thoughtfully and objectively about how to develop a topic that distinguishes them from other applicants with such questions as:
– How have you chosen to spend your time?
– What have you accomplished?
– What have you gained, both inside and outside the classroom?
