My kid is enrolled at Olive Foundation for the summer camp. We are extremely happy that we finally got our kid to a place where her time is well utilized, she learns a lot and comes back home happy. In the past years, we tried a number of summer camps and I thought they were just not worth it.
One key factor at Olive’s is Joni- the Director. The dedication with which she runs this institute is unparalleled. It is for her efforts that this is a place is what it is today. Thanks Joni- for taking care of our kids and providing them with excellent education.

“Leo participated in Olive’s summer program for the past 4 years. Since we live in Pinole, we only can attend summer program.
Leo enjoyed the program because the program made the learning fun, they make the kids have the motivation to learn, to have passion for the project, and they make kids enjoy being kind and give them the desire to help others to make a better world.
Leo loved attending leadership and English class. We especially would give a big thank you to Ms. Mithra. Leo learned how to analyze and follow the idea of what message the author would like to deliver. In each section Ms. Mithra gave parents some feedback so we could understand the full picture of how my son is doing. She also respects that each kid has their own way of learning, making them believe they’re special and they are valuable, making my son very confident.
After last summer’s class, Leo attended 7th grade and he used to not like history, but because Ms. Mithra taught him the correct way of reading, writing and understanding, he now enjoys his history class. He got an honors reward from principal.
Again, thank you Olive, for providing Leo the chance to aim high. You guys make a difference in a kid’s life. Keep doing a good job, you will build future leaders.” – Ivy Chen
