Typical Summer Offerings
Academic Program

Academic Program

(For students ages 6-14)

The Summer Academic Program has an intense schedule of academic instruction based on the individual needs of each student. The Program includes daily instruction in reading tutorial, writing, math, and study skills. Class sizes are small and students are grouped according to their academic strengths and weaknesses rather than grade level. A parent interview, additional supporting documents, and a pre-program assessment of student skills allows our team to place each student in classes that will ensure optimal learning. This program runs from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Afternoon Activities Program

Afternoon Activities Program

(for students enrolled in the Academic Program)

The Afternoon Activities Program immerses students in a fun midday program where group work, social skills, and fair play are emphasized and reinforced. Students are encouraged to try new things and actively participate in a variety of activities while fostering positive relationships with their peers. Like the Academic Program, this Program is staffed primarily by Eagle Hill faculty. This program runs from 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm.

Social Skills Program

Social Skills Program

(for students enrolled in both the Academic Program and the Afternoon Activities Program)

Eagle Hill teachers and staff provide explicit instruction in social and emotional language concepts, and help students develop their social thinking and associated social skills. Discussion and social interaction activities help students learn how to use pragmatic language successfully, recognize the skills and expectations necessary to be a positive member of a group, and initiate and sustain peer relationships.
