Hillside School is excited to offer our summer program this year! Our 3-week summer session is a fun way for students to keep their skills sharp while connecting with other students in an enjoyable and supportive academic environment.
Our summer program will begin Monday, June 6th, and continue through Friday, June 24th. Both elementary and middle school classes will run from 8:30–11:30, Monday through Friday, during those three weeks. Acceptance into our program will be based on the order the applications are received, with specific consideration to create appropriate groupings of students.
Elementary classes consist of four students and one teacher with structured instruction in reading, writing, and math skills, just like our school-year program. Teachers create a theme that is woven throughout the academic subjects and based on the interests of the group. Systematic, academic work will focus on skills maintenance and is individualized to best suit each student’s needs and the class as a whole.
Middle School classes have a maximum of six students with one teacher and emphasize instruction in the skills that are most critical to success in middle school. Literacy instruction will focus on reading comprehension and retention through effective note-taking strategies, as well as organizing and creating an expository essay with assistive technology. Math instruction will center around developing number sense and fluency skills, and solidifying mid-level math concepts.
Program Tuition: $1850
Assessment Fee: $75*
*Students who are not currently enrolled in Hillside’s school year program will be scheduled for a short assessment in the Spring in order to determine class placement.
