For many students, the summer months are a critical time to continue skill development. Center School’s Summer Program, in partnership with LaSalle University, offers the opportunity for students to develop and maintain skills, practice effective learning strategies and increase confidence in their abilities. The four-week program is designed to provide small group supportive instruction to students in grades 1 through 6 and focuses on the development and retention of language skills.
Students will learn through handson activities built around the theme, African Safari Adventure. Reading, writing, listening and speaking skills are emphasized and students receive systematic and strategic instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. Literature, art, technology, research and writing are integrated to enhance the theme. Study strategies and organizational skills are also emphasized with older students.
