For the first time, Summer Session Jr. is offering Math instruction. Math instruction will focus primarily on building number sense and practice fact fluency to increase students’ abilities to think conceptually about mathematics. Math will only be offered during the afternoon session.


Reading instruction focuses on bringing students to grade-level fluency and comprehension skills. Utilizing Reading Horizons and leveled texts, instructors help students master skills needed for their next year of school.
