Children have many needs… love, understanding, a sense of belonging, and achievement.

AEF summer programs offer a special experience. Our goal is to build confidence in campers as they grow to organize their world and build positive relationships with peers.  Our program and staff help campers develop respect for rules and authority figures (including family), exercise sound judgment, take responsibility for their actions, and have fun.  Unfortunately, there are many children who do not experience this positive cycle, and therefore cannot adjust to family, school, and/or society’s demands.


Parents who cannot afford full tuition must:

  • Fill out scholarship request / financial aid forms
  • Provide all required documentation (Tax returns, Personal Financial Statements)

AEF Camps provide children and adolescents with a safe and nurturing environment.  Campers are free to discover their identities, develop self-esteem, earn self-respect, learn how to lead, know when to follow, make friends and HAVE FUN.


This is very good school, especially for children (like my son) who Have Been in the public system and Have not been successful students. AEF has been the best choice we could do as a family. Today my son has excellent grades and I can say that someone has Become satisfied and very happy for his accomplishments with enthusiasm and very eager to go every day to class.

AEF is a WONDERFUL school, always willing to help your child. Our son has done two summer camps and is in his second year in AEF. He has come out of his shell, and loves school. Class sizes are small and teachers can focus on each child needs so they can reach their potential. AEF works on all aspects of learning which includes social and life skills. Saying all that I myself only concern is that academics seem not to always be on top of the list. Rewards are given which are primarily appears are for behavior which is great if you have behavior issue but in my case we need more focus on academics.

This is my daughter's first year at AEF and I am happy with the progress she is making. She has an IEP from the public schools which provide her with to speech therapy and extra reading and math assistance she needs on top of what she is receiving from AEF. Their program is individualized for each student so that they learn at their own pace while challenged to do more. The staff is very helpful and serve as role models for the kids from the first moment they greet them with a handshake in the morning until the end of the day. They go out of their way to communicate and involve parents in the process. I would recommend AEF for children who need a smaller class setting to thrive.
