1st - 6th Grades

Class sizes are small and taught by qualified teachers. Our instructional focus is on strengthening core reading, writing, and math skills. Reading instruction includes informational non-fiction text in the areas of science and history or social studies to increase students’ knowledge in these areas. In addition, students will have opportunities for enrichment such as foreign language, art, and music. Students will also enjoy regular physical activity and several fun excursions throughout the program.

  

Kindergarten

The transition to kindergarten can be a big step for any child. Our summer kindergarten program is designed to help prepare children for the academic and social activities that will be expected of them in kindergarten.
