The Academic Enrichment Program (AEP) which provides subject tutoring, homework help, and standardized test prep (e.g., SAT and SHSAT).  The program is housed in a professional space located less than one block from our fencing training facility.  The hours of operation are from 12:30pm to 4:30pm on Saturdays.  A team of college students, graduate students, licensed teachers, and educated professionals staff the program. We accept youth from grades 3 through 12 to participate.

The purpose of the program is to strengthen students’ skills in subject areas needing attention, so they may attain academic success.  Some of the many benefits of the program included:

  • Individualized attention for up to four hours per session from an experienced educator.
  • A supportive learning environment where students are encouraged to accept an active role in their learning process.
  • Instruction tailored to each student’s learning style and needs.
  • Positive reinforcement to improve students’ self-esteem and confidence.

This far, AEP has earned a strong reputation for preparing students to excel in vigorous academic settings.  Among key indicators of its success is the large number of PWF students who have received scholarships to highly-selective schools. These institutions include:
