The Summer Enrichment Program was developed to enhance students’ Reading and Math Curriculums, as well as provide an advance start to their upcoming school year. We have a staff of vibrant teachers who bring their dynamic teaching styles into the classroom to teach writing, vocabulary, grammar, test-taking skills, and math to small groups of energetic learners. Our program strives to boost confidence and enhances academic skills to set your child up for success both in and out of the classroom. Designed with engaging activities, the Summer Enrichment Program makes learning fun, and it’s flexible enough to fit your summer schedule.

The Program Curriculum for the 2018 Summer Enrichment Program is as follows:
Grades 1 to 6: (Reading/Language) Students will be instructed in developing strategies to help ensure success on standardized tests. Through writing and thinking skills the program fosters growth in comprehension and places an emphasis on language skills and word recognition. Students learn how integrating the skills of listening, speaking and writing will develop their achievement in comprehension and testing. Concentration is placed on the benchmark skills that contribute to success in reading. Grades 1 and 2 will also be using the “Dolch Sight Word System” and a leveled reading program to enhance their reading fluency and listening comprehension.
Grades 7 and 8: Each incoming 7th and 8th grader will receive the book, Master the Catholic High School Entrance Exams. This book will begin to prepare the students for high school entrance exams, scholarship exams, and high school placement tests. It is also an excellent resource to strengthen a student’s standardized testing. This book develops test taking strategies, enhances verbal logic, reading, and composition. A great deal of emphasis is placed on developing Quantitative Reasoning and Critical Thinking.
Grades 1-8 (Math): The Math Curriculum is designed to maintain, reinforce, enrich, and think critically. The program reinforces the mathematical skills that were taught throughout the school year, yet introduces new concepts so they have a jump start to their upcoming school year. In addition, our summer math curriculum teaches “Process Skills in Problem Solving” to all grade levels. This teaching method demonstrates step-by-step problem solving strategies to help students handle higher-level problem solving and develop the correct thinking process. The goal is to build confidence in solving visualization and application based questions in mathematics.

**Please note, as you have read the above details regarding the material which will be covered in the Summer Program, I would like to stress, that we do not necessarily base the summer program upon a student’s grade level, but by a student’s academic needs and abilities. In the past, many students have been a part of this program for true enrichment, while others have been here for reinforcement. Therefore, each student in this program is individualized, and we will meet their academic needs and group them accordingly.
