The English Language Academic Camp (ELAC) offers a truly authentic American Experience for girls and boys ages 13-17 in beautiful West Virginia.
Our 3-week, intensive English immersion course will improve your child’s confidence in reading, writing and listening comprehension in a friendly, safe and healthy environment.
ELAC is a program of the prestigious Linsly School, with its 200-year history and beautiful campus of vast green lawns and mature trees. Located in "The Friendly City” of Wheeling, West Virginia, our campus is only 83 km from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home to some of the best universities, museums, professional sports teams and cultural centers in the United States.
Wheeling, formerly the richest city per capita in the U.S., retains its amazing architecture, history and culture. Its charming, small-town atmosphere is enhanced by parks, weekend cultural events and summertime activities.
ELAC campers will be challenged to study hard during more than 90 hours of classroom instruction from experienced, certified ESL teachers. Supervised group activities, university tours and field trips will encourage students to use their English language skills in a real American setting.
Upon completing the course, ELAC campers will return home feeling more confident in their ability to communicate in English. The experience will have given them an accurate perspective on American culture, and will help students to achieve better test scores.
