2017 Summer Program

Our Summer Program is designed for students entering grades kindergarten – 12 who struggle in school or those who need the benefit of getting an academic boost for the coming school year.

Since its beginning in 1966, Key School has taught reading, phonics, and math to thousands of students, enabling them to dramatically improve academic performance. Continuing this tradition of academic excellence, Key School assists students needing remediation, reinforcement, and enrichment. Middle and High School credit classes are also available and scheduled on an individual basis.

 

Unique to Key School, our reading classes are taught by Certified Academic Language Therapists. These literary education experts are specially trained to offer this intense and in-depth form of phonics-based intervention.

Tuition rates vary based on the courses selected. The class schedule and tuition costs are listed with each class description. To reserve class space, a $200 non-refundable deposit is required. Remaining balance is due on the first day of classes (June 5, 2017). Financial Aid is not available for the Summer Program.

Most educators consider algebra to be the cornerstone for development of higher level math skills.
Key School’s approach is to teach the basic fundamentals not only for the student who needs added guidance and support in understanding algebraic concepts but also for those who would benefit from pre-instruction and early preparation prior to enrollment at each course level of algebra.
