Groves Academy: An Official Wilson Language Training Partner

Groves Academy is pleased to be a partner of Wilson Language Training®, one of the nation's leading providers of research-based reading and spelling curricula.  Wilson Language Training is dedicated to providing educators the resources they need to help their students become fluent, independent readers.

Wilson Language Training's multisensory, structured curriculum, including the Wilson Reading System®, Wilson Fundations®, and Wilson Just Words®, have proven highly effective in a variety of settings with students of all ages. The faculty and staff at Groves Academy have embraced Wilson Language Training, and have incorporated the Wilson curricula into the day school program.

Program fidelity is of utmost importance when implementing Wilson Language instruction and curriculum. We recognize that when the Wilson Reading System and other Wilson programs are delivered with fidelity and as prescribed by a qualified teacher, they work. Wilson also recognizes that a critical factor for student success is teacher knowledge. Thus, Groves Academy, in partnership with Wilson Language Training, is committed to upholding the highest standards for training and certification.

Ellen Engstrom, Groves Academy's Director of Teacher Training, is a credentialed Wilson Language trainer, and leads training and certification classes for Groves Academy teachers and teachers from the community-at-large. Registration is required. Certificates of attendance will be offered for continuing education credits (CEUs).

In addition to the WRS® Level I Certification program, Groves Academy offers a wide array of WRS® workshops and training programs.  Please click on one of the following links to learn more:
