Check out this great video created by Austin, a 13-year-old student of The Learnatory (called GenTech in Chicago)! With absolutely no prior knowledge, he was taught and applied in these real-world 3-D animation skills in 10 days compared to what a college student typically learns in 2 years.
The Senior Artist Director at EA Sports, who visited our program, actually offered Austin a job - as soon as he turned 16!

We know that learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. That's why most of our educators have achieved advanced degrees and are experts in their field. They are actually more than experts in their fields. They are practitioners of behavioral science and focus on HOW learning best takes place for each child.
Is your child a beginner, expert, or somewhere in between? Not to worry! We offer a variety of high-quality courses designed to prepare your child for the next step. Whether a STEAM class or admissions testing, our placement tests help match interests & skill levels.
To reinforce those skills, we help children understand themselves better. They learn HOW they best learn, strategies to internalize the knowledge and behaviors that turn into strong life-long learning habits.

We provide students with interactive, interdisciplinary classroom environments enabling them to develop in-demand skills and knowledge that improve their competitive standing, elevate their marketability, and build their confidence in addressing real-world challenges.

I am so pleased with The Learnatory and its summer camp! I like that it offers a wide spectrum of kids, too. I am so happy with the environment. It's priceless! Thank you for the program. Angels were shining on me the day I found this camp.
The Learnatory is pretty cool. If I get up to go to something at 7 am on a Saturday morning, it must be pretty cool! I’m learning to do things kids my age can’t do like make video games and animations. I am going to start making Apps for the iPhone soon! I think this is a really good program – and it is fun. No stress.

I am glad that I discovered The Learnatory STEAM Program. I believe that my child has an edge and an advantage that has shifted, if not broadened, his educational path. As a parent, The Learnatory has made me a believer!
I am glad that I have found the right educational fit and I look forward to where it takes my son. This is my child’s pre-college experience. I am so smiling. Why? I see the possibilities into his future. Thank you, Learnatory.
