Summer time is a time to refresh and renew! We all set aside some time to relax, visit family and vacation. Summer time is also the perfect time to get ahead of the upcoming school year. We offer various programs for students to fill in academic gaps, take refresher math or writing courses or work on class work for the upcoming school year.
Reading and Math Remediation-If your Math and/or Reading diagnostic pre-test revealed some gaps in learning, use the summer to work on your basic skills. A strong foundation in Reading Comprehension and Basic Arithmetic and Geometry is needed for standardized test success including SAT and ACT exams.
Math Workshops can refresh your memory and help reinforce learning in all areas of basic math that were not learned before, unclear or simply forgotten. Math knowledge builds student achievement and confidence.
Writing Workshops can help students with writing a cohesive and organized essay which is needed for class papers, standardized testing and SAT and ACT exams.
Summer Prep Academy-Grades 2-8 we work with students on the upcoming school year’s curriculum. Students work on Reading comprehension, English Language Arts and Math to get ahead of the class for fall. Students are knowledgeable when teachers teach the class material and poised to make A’s.
Summer Courses-Grades 9-12-Students take upcoming math and science courses in Biology, Chemistry, Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, and Physics.
PSAT Prep-Students can get prepared for the newly designed PSAT which will be given in October. Students will have the advantage of learning the new test format and practice. 12 week course.
SAT or ACT Prep– Rising Juniors, Seniors and Sophomores can prep to improves scores on the SAT before the redesigned test is released. Research shows that the greater the time students have to practice and prep, the more scores increase and test anxiety decreases.
Navigating the College Application Process– Students will bring their laptops for an interactive planning session to plan for life after high school.
Study Skills-Learn organizational skills to become confident! Handle stress, learn note-taking and reading comprehension strategies.
Get a HEADSTART on the new school year. The reality is that students have the years between Kindergarten and 10th grade to obtain the core academic skills needed before taking college admissions exams to continue on the time scale of entering college directly after the high school senior year. Don’t wait until the sophomore, junior or senior year of high school when there is too little time left to improve Reading, Math and Writing skills before taking SAT or ACT.
