The schools, created by Wendy Xa, a former vice president at Goldman Sachs and a mother of two who founded the Mandarin immersion Presidio Knolls School in San Francisco in 2008 as a preschool before expanding it to a K-8 program, seek to be "a world class institution in the heart of Mill Valley," Xa says.
The summer camps are for kids ages 3-15 and run from June 3 to August 9. They are "Academics & Archery" (ages 7-13), Earth Discovery (ages 3-15), and Mandarin Mania (ages 3-10), while a SSAT prep for rising seventh and eighth grader runs May 25-July 5.
