Students in our Summer English and Math Enrichment courses will be placed among other students who have just finished their same grade level. The summer curriculum will address the materials that will be learned in their September classes. For example, a student who has just finished 5th grade in June will be placed among other “5th grade” students. However, these “5th graders” will be getting a head start on the upcoming academic year by learning 6th grade materials.
