Our 4-week summer program is designed to help students develop strong foundational skills for future academic and personal success while acquiring new learning strategies that can be utilized into the new school year. Our summer program blends academics, fine arts, therapeutic play, and social opportunities to prevent the “summer slide”, empower, grow, and ultimately have fun.
