Summer 2020

FOR STUDENTS AGES 5-14. JULY 6 - JULY 31.

 

You've heard of "summer slide" - but your child won't experience it here.

Eagle Hill's Summer Academic Program is an extension of the philosophy and strategies for leaning that we use throughout the regular school year. We create a multi-sensory, hands-on summer learning experience that sets students up for success in the fall. 

The Summer Academic Program immerses each child in a language-focused environment tailored to meet his or her learning needs.

Eagle Hill's Summer Academic Program is open to any student ages 5-14 who either has a language-based learning disability or simply needs additional learning support.

The 2020 program runs Monday through Friday from July 6-30.

The day is divided into two segments:

  • Academic Program (divided into two age groups): 8 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Afternoon Activities Program (open to those enrolled in the Academic Program): 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m.

Students may also join the Summer Afternoon Social Skills Group.

Preventing the Summer Slide

 

As educators, one thing that concerns all of us at Eagle Hill School in Greenwich is the amount of learning that our students lose during the summer months. This “summer slide” can be discouraging for a student as a new school year begins.

Of course, we all (teachers and families alike) look forward to the summer months. Longer, warmer days with more time to relax, spend time with our loved ones, and maybe even take a nice, long trip. Still, summer is always shorter than we think and goes by faster than we anticipate. Though we all need and cherish this more relaxing time, it’s estimated that, without support, young students can lose significant academic progress over the summer. This means that students, and teachers, are starting off the next school year at a disadvantage. It’s thought that teachers can spend up to six weeks of the new school year working to get their students back to their pre-summer point.
