Following each session, you will receive a personalized session report on your child’s performance. All summer programs include a cumulative Progress Report and Conference to show you the gains your child has made and share feedback on how your child can continue to maximize his or her potential.

Instruction focuses on building these foundational skills and developing strategies for timed multiple-choice and free writing testing.
