Students want nothing more than freedom, fun and relaxation during the summer—but spending two months playing video games or hanging out at Six Flags can really put a cramp in your brain! Students, particularly those with learning differences, typically show little or no academic growth over the summer; at worst, students can lose several months of academic progress over a summer spent without reading, numbers, and practice at organizational skills.
Since 2007, Hill School has offered summer programming with a purpose. From boosters for foundational skills in reading and math to exploring areas of interest in dramatic and fine arts to athletic conditioning to SAT preparation, students from Hill School and other area public and private schools can spend the Summer at Hill. Maintaining our same small student to instructor ratio during the summer program, students can gain skills and confidence to prepare them for the upcoming school year. At Hill School, our summer program is designed to keep brains working for the month of June.
