The Financial Literacy Lab teaches students how to make fundamental financial decisions that instill needed responsibility as they transition to adulthood.  Students will learn to: manage money, make a money plan, set financial goals (spending, saving and giving) and develop a basic understanding of various financial tools (checking, savings, credit cards, mortgage, other types of loans, and the stock market).  Fundamental concepts from Dave Ramsey’s “Foundation in Personal Finance” are used to provide each student with a better understanding of how their money works.  


We provide a fun lunch every day (see menu below) and we will wrap up Friday afternoon with a round of “Financial Jeopardy.”

The High School Readiness Lab makes the big High School transition much easier.  Our 4-day program guides students to classroom success by focusing on a different daily topic --each one of which is an important foundation for creating a successful High School (and beyond) experience.


Some of the topics we cover are:

  • Organization - using a planner (our 2020-2021 Academic Planner is included)

  • Time Management

  • Study Skills

  • Note Taking

  • Active Listening

  • Test Prep

ACT/SAT Practice Exam Session

For Individual Sections of the Exam

Cost - $25/hour (can sign up for 1 or 2 sessions each day)


Wednesday Starting June 17th



10:00 -11:00am

One of the most effective ways to study for the ACT/SAT is to run through timed practice exams.  Practice exams help students improve their test taking skills and therefore increase their scores in the following ways:


  • Students can pinpoint their weaknesses in each section and focus their energy on areas of the exam for which they need to improve.

  • Students learn how to pace themselves through each section.

  • Students become familiar with the instructions for each section which increases the amount of time they have to answer questions during the real exams.

  • It is very common for students to suffer from test fatigue.  Practicing test taking, similar to practicing in a sport, helps condition each student to increase their mental endurance.


During these one-hour sessions at StudyLab, students will sit for a section of the exam while being timed.  Each student will choose which section of the exam that they want to practice for that hour.  An answer key will be given to the students when they are finished.  


The Geometry Lab

Cost - $250 (includes materials for class and lunch at 1:00)


July 13th - 17th 


12:00 - 2:30pm

Geometry helps students understand spatial relationships and builds a strong foundation for required advanced math courses throughout high school.  Most Kansas City-area students will take some level of Geometry during their Freshman or Sophomore year.  StudyLab’s “Pre-Geometry” course readies these students for the new and challenging concepts they will encounter. 


Our 5-day course starts with a review of Algebra I concepts that are essential for a successful transition into Geometry.  The second part of the course covers an introduction to major geometry concepts, including looking at basic figures (points, lines and planes) as well as concepts of parallelism and perpendicularity.  We will also introduce the basic concepts of postulates and theorems. 


We provide lunch every day (see menu below) and we will wrap up Friday afternoon with a Geometry game.

ACT/SAT Practice Exam Sessions


Cost - $100 /hour


Saturday Mornings from 8:00am - 12:00pm


June 20th

June 27th

July 11th

July 25th

Students should arrive by 8:00 a.m.  In some actual testing environments the doors close at 8:00 – so arriving slightly before this time will be important.


Similar to the actual ACT/SAT exam, instructions will be given around 8:15 and the exam will start promptly at 8:30.  There are many benefits to taking practice tests for the ACT/SAT exams, many are mentioned in the section above.  The main purpose of these full test taking sessions is to give each student an opportunity to practice an entire exam in a simulated test environment.  


At the end of each section our “proctors” will grade the exams so students will leave with an idea of how they performed and can focus their efforts on areas for which they need to improve.

Buy a Planner

Suggested Add-ons

Cost - $25

StudyLab believes that the first step towards being a successful student is to be organized.  As students move into high school the need to be organized becomes increasingly more critical.  Time management is key!  In order for students to keep track of all assignments, deadlines and fit in the fun stuff, they will have to manage their schedules effectively.  That’s where we come in.  Our planner is setup for students.  We have designed the planner so that students can track their short and long-term assignments (including advance test preparation) and we have also included a two-week finals calendar to organize finals studies into manageable chunks.  We know the planners are effective and have seen improvement in academic results through our clients while also noticing a reduction in stress levels by merely having a “Plan”.  


StudyLab’s planners can be purchased at any time for $25 and will be available at all of our summer classes.
