Summertime Academies

STEAM Academy


A joint effort between Youth Combine and Gainesville Dev Academy. Together, we combine science, technology, engineering, art and math education with fitness programming into a single summer curriculum to enrich and enhance your child’s summer experience. We match each week’s curriculum with walking field trips and guest speakers to provide a more tangible education experience. Our curriculum is catered to each child’s age and experience, and each day is split up into classes focusing on each area of our curriculum.

"My son loved all the cool labs you visited, and for the first time I heard that he wanted to be a radiation oncologist, pediatric surgeon, or a prosthetics engineer, rather than a football player. I don't care what he picks in the long run as long as he loves it, but I do want him to have a sense of broad possibilities and the academy definitely supported that. He will definitely be back next summer for more than one week."

Computer Programming

Educational software and one-on-one instruction ensures students of all levels are engaged and challenged. Curriculum features topics from video game development to robotic design.



Fun and challenging workouts provide the physical activity needed to break up instruction time and energize our kids. Fitness classes split time between strength and coordination workouts and games to encourage teamwork, confidence and sportsmanship.



Art + Design classes are designed to increase student creativity and draw connections from the other STEM disciplines. Students will work on a project throughout the week, finishing with a piece of unique art that they can take home.
