2019 Academic Program
for Grades 2-8 (June 17 - July 12)
The 4-week academic morning program provides small class sizes of 6-8 students grouped according to age, reading, writing, and math abilities.
Like all Groves programs, the academic programs for grades 2-8 are highly suited for students who have strong ability and a desire to learn along with dyslexia, and attention disorders, such as ADHD.
Students in the morning academic program attend reading, writing, and math classes for 55 minutes each, plus recess.
In each subject care is taken to begin at a level where students can experience success before confidently moving on to more advanced skills.
Teachers combine their experience and expertise with care and understanding, using a diagnostic-prescriptive approach to continually assess and address individual needs.
A final progress report, including recommendations, is sent following the conclusion of
Reading - Word Attack and Decoding, Fluency, Comprehension, Vocabulary, Spelling
Writing - Capitalization, Punctuation, Sentence Structure, Paragraph Development, Idea Organization
Math - Mathematical Concepts, Mathematical Operations, Computation, Word Problems
Our teachers are trained in Orton-Gillingham, Wilson, Singapore Math, and The Writing Revolution, and they use these approaches to guide their instruction.
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 care.
Our program is not designed for disruptive or oppositional students, for students with a diagnosis of autism or developmental/cognitive delay, or for students with emotional issues unrelated to a learning disability.
