Preventing Brain Drain-Keeping and Learning Skills to be Successful (grades 6-8)

Don't let your brain turn to mush, you learned too much to lose it so fast! "Brain drain" is common in the summer months. Just as you exercise your body to stay in shape, you need to exercise your mind, as well. Through individualized assessment and plans, our instructors will develop a lesson plan especially for you to keep your skills sharp, so you can start next year successfully. Keep your brain drain plugged and help retain all of the great skills you learned this year! Plan to attend at least 15 hours throughout the summer program. You may attend additional hours, if you wish. For ease of facilitation, arrive on the hour and stay as long you you deem necessary.  

  • June 12-15, 7-11am 4 hours, 4 days=16 hours
  • June 19-22, 7-11am 4 hours, 4 days=16 hours

Math curriculum includes computerized programs, math games and 1:1 instruction.

English curriculum includes learning stations, interactive (online) lessons, journals and games that focus on reading, writing, and language components, interwoven in an independent and fun learning format. Bring your own reading book or device (tablet, e-reader, etc.) and notebook/journal for writing. 

*You may come anytime within the time frame for an hour or two. We don't recommend three hours, but you will need at least 30 minutes at a time. If you sign up for both sessions, save $10. You may alternate between Math and English classrooms.You will have your own individualized plan, so you do not need to attend at a specific time. This program was created to allow students to participate around other summer events.
