The summer program at The Learning Center is a five-week academic program providing language arts and mathematics instruction to students in grades one through eight. Instruction is primarily designed to meet the needs of students with language-based learning differences (dyslexia) and students who have experienced difficulties in both reading and math. The program is open to all students and does not require formal testing to attend.
The program is designed to prevent regression that often occurs over the summer months and provide students with a springboard to start the coming year fully prepared. Meeting the individual needs of children is at the core of the program and lessons are designed to fit each student’s learning profile. Summer also means fun, so brain breaks, recess, and a healthy snack are provided daily.
This year in addition to in-person classes, a virtual option will be available. Programming will be the same for students in the online program with the exception of snacks. Adjustments in class times will be tailored to the various time zones.
