Our camps are specifically designed to emphasize both team play and individual skill development.

Each session is constructed to help players achieve their maximum potential through progressive exercises that are age & ability appropriate, individually gratifying and developmentally challenging. We encourage players to step out of their comfort zone and expand their horizons by implementing new skills in a constructive and safe atmosphere. Our goal is to improve your child’s overall soccer ability in a comfortable and fun environment!

Huntington Learning Center Celebrates 40 Years of Helping Students Create Bright Futures Oradell, NJ 5/4/2017 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Since its founding in 1977 by Dr. Raymond and Mrs. Eileen Huntington, Huntington Learning Center has helped millions of students of all ages and abilities learn the skills needed to excel in school, improve their study habits and build self-confidence. Huntingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in supporting students and schools is more important than ever A 2015 study by the Program for International Student Assessment showed that 15-year-old students in the U.S. ranked 24th out of 72 educational systems in average reading literacy, and only 40th in math literacy. Additional studies show the U.S. lagging behind in other critical areas: 17th out of 40 in overall educational performance and 6th out of 49 in fourthgrade reading. This academic gap has created demand for specialized, skills-based tutoring and test prep. Huntingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certified tutors provide individualized instruction across many academic areas to K-12 students. Huntington has designed a proprietary fourstep approach (comprehensive evaluation, personalized learning plan, individualized tutoring, and regular communication with families and schools) and the results have been profound. On average, Huntington students increase two or more grade levels in reading and math over a three-month period. Average SAT scores increase 192 points after a 2.5month program, while ACT scores increase an average of four points. Grounded by the Huntington mission: To give every student the best education possible â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Eileen and I started this company, our hope was to help struggling students and give them the oneto-one supplemental instruction they needed to boost their confidence and grades,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Huntington.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Today, we are astonished by the results weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen and incredibly proud that we have changed so many studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives.â&#x20AC;? Huntington is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, and was one of the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first approved supplemental education services providers under No Child Left Behind. Eileen Huntington, co-founder and CEO, adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve received numerous awards and accolades over the past 40 years, but our greatest joy is knowing that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve helped millions of students gain the skills to succeed.â&#x20AC;? Steady demand nationwide In 1985, Huntington began franchising, growing to 148 franchised centers by 2000. Today, it operates nearly 300 centers in 38 states, but remains a familyowned-and-operated company. The Huntingtons are proud to welcome the next generation into the business to continue the mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to the next 40 years of changing students' lives across America,â&#x20AC;? adds their daughter, Anne Huntington, who is actively involved in all aspects of the business as head of partnerships and development.

GET HELP NOW!     Free consultation Comprehensive academic evaluation Personalized tutoring      Flexible payment options for all budgets

Dr. Huntington says that now is the perfect time to enroll students for summer tutoring programs or SAT/ACT test prep. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether students want to catch up or boost their knowledge between grades, summer is one of the best times to come to Huntington, as students have much more free time than during the school year,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We encourage parents to explore how Huntington can help their children this summer.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started with an overall score of 17 on the ACT. After getting my initial results, I became extremely anxious about my college path. Tom and Todd assured me that this was only the beginning and plenty of students who went on to score very high started exactly where I was. On the December test, I got a composite score of 28. Not only did Tom and Todd help me improve my score, they helped me become a better student.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; George K.
