Annapolis area sailing school needed for teen beginner

Hi all,
I'm looking for a sailing school recommendation in the Annapolis area for my step-son, who is 14 (will be 15 in a few months). He's a real beginner--we just got our boat this year, and the three of us (my wife, step-son, and I) have been going out on weekends. He's been doing great, and learning things as he goes.

But I know that I didn't really learn to sail until I took classes. And if he's interested, we'd like to offer him the opportunity to take classes too.

I know there are many schools in the Annapolis area, so that's why I ask for a recommendation. When looking online, it seemed as though most classes for beginners were for much younger kids, and most classes for kids the age of my step-son were more advanced. Neither of those would be a good fit.

I would really like this to be a positive and fun experience for him (again, if he wants to go--we're not going to make him do it).

Any recommendations?

Thanks!
-J
