2017 Online Summer Session

 

 

Summer is the perfect time to soak in the sun and enjoy some family fun.


But summer is also a perfect time to hone writing skills or read a book that will challenge and thrill student readers.


If your student is a struggling writer, the freedom of a summer schedule will allow for complete focus on developing the needed skills without other subjects competing for time and attention. If your student is a strong and avid writer, why not stretch those skills and try a new genre? And certainly all students benefit from a strong summer reading curriculum which encompasses both comprehension skills and literature based writing.


Our online summer program will allow your student the flexibility of either a 4 week or 8 week session which they can work on around their other activities. Each week's activities are posted one day a week and then students can use the entire week to complete assignments.


Each 8 week course includes a weekly quiz, 2 lessons, and an assignment to put the weekly content into practice. All work is personally assessed and individual feedback for improvement offered. -$159 per course


Each 4 week Reading  & Writing Workshop includes vocabulary assignments/quizzes, comprehension quizzes, short essay assignments, as well as literature based writing assignments. -$99 per course
