COVID-19 Updates from Areteem Institute

Areteem Institute is dedicated to continue serving students and families through the uncertainties caused by coronavirus (COVID-19).

First and foremost, Areteem wants to focus on everyone's health and well-being. As with everything we do, education is key. We all can help slow the spread of coronavirus by washing our hands, practicing social distancing, and staying home when possible.

Learning Safely Online

Areteem is pausing current onsite tutoring and onsite classes for the Spring. All instruction is currently taking place online. Please see below for an update to 2020 Areteem Summer Camps.

Areteem online programs are unaffected as students can attend live classes and watch recordings for self-paced courses in the safety of their own home.

Areteem is committed to giving students additional options for online learning if their normal school schedule is disrupted.

2020 Areteem Summer Camps

Areteem is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and how it might affect the summer of 2020. At this time the San Jose and East Cost Summer camps are cancelled, but the West Coast Summer Camp is not cancelled. We are hopeful that the West Coast Summer Camp can still be held in a way that is safe for students, parents, and teachers. Students and parents will be kept up to date with any changes.

We realize that many families are facing uncertainty with their summer plans. Instead of the normal 60 days from the start of a camp, registered students for the 2020 Summer Camps will have until 30 days before the start of the camp to request a refund. Requests received before this time will receive a full refund minus a $200 administrative fee.

Updated dates to request a refund (minus $200 administrative fee):

  • 2020 San Jose Area Summer Day Camp, May 5th, 2020 (Camp dates: 6/8-6/19) (camp cancelled)
  • 2020 East Coast Summer Camp, May 28th, 2020 (Camp dates: 6/28-7/16) (camp cancelled)
  • 2020 West Coast Summer Camp, June 19th, 2020 (Camp dates: 7/19-8/7)

In the event a camp is cancelled, registered students will receive a full refund of tuition. Any student unable to attend the camp due to a documented medical issue (including COVID-19) will also receive a full refund.

To add further flexibility for students and families, Areteem will offer an Online Summer Camp Program from June 15th - July 10th. This Online Summer Camp will include interactive online classes Monday through Friday from 9am-3pm Pacific Time each day. Registration will be available on a weekly basis, and is open to students from upper elementary school to high school.
