Eagle Hill is excited to offer a three-week Summer Academic Program in collaboration with the Singapore American School. Students will work with an Eagle Hill trained teacher to receive an individualized, skill-based program where explicit instruction will be provided in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, study skills, executive functioning, and attention issues. This program is designed for students ages six to eighteen who are in need of additional support in these academic areas. Class sizes will be small, and courses will focus on the individual areas of academic need for each student.


This program will be located at the Singapore American School campus: 40 Woodlands Street 41 Singapore 738547

Contact International Programs Director Tom Cone for further information.



Academic classes are focused on the development of specific skills and strategies using an explicit, research-based instructional model.


Students are placed in small groups and instruction is individualized and tailored specifically to each student's learning profile. The small class size provides an intimate learning environment.


Students are presented lessons that use a variety of techniques to ensure that instruction is motivating, fun, and encourages active learning. Multi-sensory and experiential activities and cooperative group learning/projects are examples of strategies that are used.


Each child is offered a learning experience that is positive and successful. This learning environment is highly structured, supportive, and encourages confidence in both their academic skills and self-esteem.


Our supportive and nurturing environment is the key to providing a social experience in which each child feels accepted and valued.


A pre-program assessment of skills allows the admissions team to place each student in classes that will best ensure optimal learning. Additionally, admissions team members will have a discussion with parents and ask to see supporting documents and school work.

This program will include four classes per day for three weeks.
  • Reading and Reading Comprehension
  • Writing
  • Math
  • Study Skills

Classes include a combination of direct instruction, cooperative group work, and individualized one-on-one instruction. Teachers will provide parents with a detailed report of their child's progress in each subject area, and a parent conference will be offered at the conclusion of the program.


Tuition for this program is $4,500 (US dollars). If you are accepted into the program, you will be provided instructions on how to pay in US funds via international wire.


An Eagle Hill Experience in Singapore:



Dan Baker

Mr. Baker has 15 years of teaching experience, nine of which have been at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich, CT. He has represented EHS abroad before - he taught at the summer program in London for three years and served as the director of that program last summer. He is excited to be Co-Director of the program in Singapore this summer! He holds a Masters in Educational Leadership, and a Bachelor's in Education. He enjoys teaching reading and math and helping students become life-long learners.

Outside of the classroom, Mr. Baker can be found spending time with his family and friends, playing golf, watching baseball, and - when time allows - traveling!

Sharon Mechaley, Program Director

Sharon graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree from Boston College and M.P.S. in Special Education from Manhattanville College in Purchase, New York. This year she is celebrating her 35 year at Eagle Hill School. Ms. Mechaley has taught all subjects, but her specialties are language arts, reading, and mathematics.

Outside of the classroom, she loves traveling, hiking with her dog, Jake, and spending time at her house in Maine. On rainy days she loves to read young adult books and binge watch a great series or movies. Ms. Mechaley is very excited about spending a second summer with the students in Singapore.

Jillian Davis

Ms. Davis has been teaching at Eagle Hill for four years and has her Masters of Education in Elementary Inclusive Special Education. She has taught in London for Eagle Hill for the past two summers and is excited to join the Singapore team this summer! When she was a student, English language arts was her favorite subject, and that's still the case as a teacher. She loves teaching reading, writing, and literature and helping her students find enjoyment in the same areas. 

If she's not in her classroom, Ms. Davis is probably reading, baking yummy treats, or singing along to her favorite musical soundtracks!
