Summer Programs at Groves Academy

Fun and educational programs to get ahead next year.

We are no longer accepting applications for our 2018 summer programs for grades 2-8, June 18-July 13. Limited space remains in our grades 9-11 program, July 23-Aug 3

Application Information 


During the summer, we are pleased to offer students from the community the same tailored, high quality Groves Academy education that we provide to our full-time students during the school year.

Our summer programs, taught by Groves-trained teachers, employ our proven philosophy of developing strengths and talents, remediating academic weaknesses, and tailoring instruction to meet individual needs. 

By using our research-based curriculum, while maintaining small class sizes, we help students close the gap between their academic potential and achievement. We offer programs for children entering grades 2-11 who have learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, and attention disorders, such as ADHD.


Academic Program for Grades 2-8 (June 18 - July 13)

Our morning academic program for students entering grades 2-8 runs 9:00am until 12:00pm and includes classes in reading/spelling, writing, and math. Classes are 55 minutes each (plus recess break) and held Monday through Friday. Students are grouped according to age and ability level. Most classes have six students; some classes in grades 6-8 may have up to eight students.

Teachers provide class updates and individual feedback over the course of the program. A final progress report, including recommendations, is sent following the conclusion of the program. 

Optional before-school care is available from 7:30am-9:00am.


Afternoon Enrichment Program for Grades 2-8 (June 18 - July 13)

Our afternoon enrichment program for students entering grades 2-8 offers meaningful, structured, and fun activities in areas such as art, technology, physical education, and music. Classes are held in 2-week blocks and are offered from 12:30pm-1:30pm and 1:30pm-3:30pm.  Students may sign up for one or several classes, which maintain a student to teacher ratio of 8:1. Classes may be divided into age-appropriate sections.

Students who attend the morning program and continue in the afternoon program will have a lunch period built into their day from 12:00pm-12:30pm. Students must bring their own lunch.

Optional after-school care is available from 3:30pm-5:00pm.


Academic Program for Grades 9-11 (July 23 - August 3)

Our academic program for students entering grades 9-11 encompasses three separate classes with multiple sections: Math Workshop, Study Skills, and Writing Strategies. Classes are offered from 8:45am-10:15am, 10:30am-12:00pm, and 12:30pm-2:00pm for two weeks. Taught by Groves teachers, each class has a maximum of 10 students. Students have the flexibility to apply for any number of classes.
