They meet June 23 to August 1, two hours daily for a total of 60 hours. Students in preview courses will cover approximately half of the entire course material over a six-week period. Students who wish to preview a specific math subject for less than six weeks should enroll in the Math Clinic.

Drop and Go
Allow us to share the morning with your child and prepare them for a day of learning. The morning activities will provide flexible and structured learning opportunities for growth and social interaction. The flexible environment will include puzzles, games, books and literature-based activities to warm up their minds for cognition.
Lunch Bunch provides students with lunch each day and the opportunity to eat and mingle with their classmates. For some, it will be a time for winding down from a busy morning, eating a healthy lunch and getting ready to go home. For others, it will be a time to regroup and prepare for an afternoon of summer, fun-filled activities. Children will have the opportunity to play during a supervised recess.
Stay and Play
Summer and sun-filled activities make the Stay and Play program a very popular one. Children will be invited to participate in afternoon recreational activities such as baseball, basketball, water-play, soccer, volleyball and kickball. Daily electives may consist of art, music and computers. Snacks and juice will be provided.
