Summer Academic Enrichment Program
Killian Oaks Academy’s Summer Academic Enrichment Program is designed to continue the academic experience into the summer vacation months. Summer studies are important as they provide the repeated exposure and consistent patterning that enhance academic mastery. Students that have participated in our program have maintained or improved their achievement levels, and have returned to the classroom better prepared in the fall.
Our objective is to maximize students’ learning through comprehensive and structured personalized programs in small classroom settings. Intellectual and creative activities, often overlooked during the long summer months, are employed to stimulate and challenge the students. Our proven strategies and professional support help students discover their true potential.
Reading: The objective of our reading program is to enhance students’ phonemic awareness, phonics, reading fluency, and comprehension skills through the application of multiple reading strategies that develop the student’s ability to construct meaning from text. Reading instruction is individualized utilizing a variety of proven strategies. Accomplished in small group settings, students improve their reading skills by the conclusion of our six-week program.
Mathematics: Individualized learning strategies are employed to increase the student’s motivation and confidence. Students are initially assessed to determine their current mastery level, and are then provided with mathematical lessons ranging from application to increasingly advanced skills within a small group setting. The goal is to motivate each student in an encouraging and nurturing environment, while at the same time challenging the student to succeed.
Language Skills: Language skills instruction encompasses composition, spelling, grammar, and research skills while reinforcing penmanship. The approach is developmental and is accomplished in small group settings. The program fosters a student’s natural development of language and reinforces the tools of English and composition. A curricular framework encompassing each student’s writing style is utilized to determine the areas that require remediation and support.
