The dates for the 2014 Summer Program are June 16 through July 18, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. daily. The five-week Summer Program is designed for students in grades 1-8. Daily instruction is provided in the areas of reading, writing, and math in a 4:1 student teacher ratio. Students who attend the Summer Program may enroll in the regular school year program or may choose to attend the five week session only.
The program helps prevent the regression in performance that occurs during the summer without daily practice as well as provides the opportunity for students to improve their skills. Admission to the summer program does not require diagnosis of a learning disability, dyslexia, and/or attention deficit disorder.
"My son started the program feeling very angry and upset that he had to go to summer school. By day 3, he suggested that he would like to return next year! He told me that he could really learn at HillSprings compared to his elementary school - despite all the small group instruction he had there. His teacher was great, your approach worked well for him, and he felt successful."
