Summer Programs at Groves Academy
Fun and educational programs to get a leg up on next year
We will begin accepting applications for our 2018 summer programs on January 18.
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.
