Summer Programs at Groves Academy
We are currently accepting applications for 2019 Summer Programs.
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 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 class sizes of 6-8 students, 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 17 - July 12)
Students in the morning academic program attend reading, writing, and math classes for 55 minutes each, plus recess.
Academic classes are held in the morning and enrichment classes are held in the afternoon. Families may choose to apply for full days, just the mornings, or just the afternoons.
We offer optional before-and after- school.
Enrichment Program for Grades 2-8 (June 17 - July 12)
The afternoon enrichment program provides meaningful, structured, and fun activities. All classes provide a safe and inclusive environment, and are designed to meet students’ individual needs, interests, and abilities.
Students who attend the morning program and continue in the afternoon will have a lunch period from 12:00-12:30pm. Students must bring their own lunch.
Progress reports are not provided for afternoon enrichment classes.
New Offering! Writing and Executive Function Program for Grades 5-7 (June 17 - July 12)
This program will provide students opportunities for direct instruction in writing and executive functioning skills and strategies. Students learn about mindfulness, growth mindset, response inhibition, sustained attention, time management, cognitive flexibility, planning and organization, and use these strategies to become more independent in writing and literature course work.
Using The Writing Revolution curriculum, writing instruction will be individualized to meet each student’s needs. A best fit student for this class has functional reading skills, a need for executive functioning strategies, and specific support in writing.
This class is held Monday - Friday from 12:30 - 3:30pm.
This is a stand alone offering that cannot be paired with other course offerings.
Academic Program for Grades 9-11 (July 22 - August 2)
Our academic program for students entering grades 9-11 encompasses three separate classes: Math Workshop, Executive Function, and Writing Strategies. Classes are offered from 8:45am-10:15am, 10:30am-12:00pm, and 12:30pm-2:00pm for two weeks.
Students have the flexibility to apply for 1, 2, or all 3 classes.
Those who are enrolled in multiple classes will have a lunch period from 12:00-12:30pm. Students must bring their own lunch.
