Summer Literacy Program

Program Details

As of May 20th, the Summer Literacy Program is full. Thank you for your interest!

The Summer Literacy Program is designed for young people going into grades 1-8. In the past, parents have found this experience helpful for readers and writers with a variety of strengths and areas of growth.

  • July 9-20 | Monday-Friday | 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.
  • For children currently in K-7 grade
  • Non-refundable Registration Fee: week 1 $50, 2 weeks $75

This year students will receive small group literacy instruction. Our instructors are certified teachers who are completing a Master’s of Education in Literacy. The instructors will conduct assessments to determine students’ areas of strength and growth and provide appropriate instruction accordingly. Instructors will prepare progress monitoring and final reports for you and any school personnel you choose to receive them.

If you are interested in having your child (children) attend, download the registration form (one for each child) and return it to me at the address below. The second to last page allows us to obtain school records to help plan appropriate instruction. Since this opportunity fills fast, please register at your earliest convenience. Registration will begin March 1. Include a check made out to “Roberts Wesleyan College” and in the memo line “Summer Literacy Program.” Spots will only be held for those whose payment has been received. We do fill on a first-come-first-serve basis, while considering the teaching and learning needs of the graduate students in the Literacy Program.
