We celebrate the life of the mind. We call our campers “motivated learners,” figuring anyone who shows up to take biology, math, or art in July is motivated. AICL creates an environment in which it is safe to laugh and learn, to risk and fail, and to experiment with something outside of one’s competence.
Through outreach and scholarships, we foster a racially and economically diverse community. At AICL, we see everyone as both a learner and a teacher. We encourage social and intellectual interactions that will enable our students to fulfill their personal, professional, and academic potential. Because we build curricula based on the idea that learning is fun and should be on-going, we prepare our students to engage our complex world with insight, empathy, and confidence. When a camper comes to AICL, they have an opportunity to join a community of educators and students who are passionate about learning and creating.
