London 2018

EAGLE HILL SCHOOL'S LONDON SUMMER

ACADEMIC PROGRAMME

For students ages 6-16. Monday-Friday, July 9-27, 2018


Eagle Hill is excited to return to London for our fourth summer. This three-week programme is designed to support students who struggle with reading (including dyslexia), writing, maths, executive function, and attention issues.

Students who attend will work with an Eagle Hill trained teacher to receive a personalized, skill-based programme. Classes are small, allowing for teachers to individualize lessons to meet each student's academic needs.

ADMISSIONS PROCESS

At the heart of this skills-based programme is an intense schedule of academic instruction based on assessed needs. In order to place students in appropriate groups according to their skills, we have a discussion with parents and ask to see supporting documents and school work. We then ask students to complete a brief pre-programme assessment of their skills.

CLASSES

The programme will include four classes per day for three weeks.

  • English Comprehension
  • English Writing
  • Maths
  • Learning Strategies for the Classroom & Exams

Classes will include a combination of direct instruction, cooperative group work, and individualised one-on-one instruction. This highly successful programme is beneficial for students with a full range of academic abilities, from those who require more targeted skills instruction to high-achieving students who need some academic fine-tuning. Students are grouped by age and skill, determined by pre-assessments. At the end of the programme, teachers provide parents with a detailed report of their child's progress in each subject area, and include further details during a personal conference.

COURSE DESCRIPTIONS

English Comprehension

Emphasis is placed on the development of reading skills. In addition, instruction will focus on reading comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, and additional skills (e.g., study and organization skills).
