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.

This two part enrichment class provides high school students with the practical tools needed for writing book reports, essays, research papers, one draft compositions, and term themes. It also encourages vocabulary development by utilizing Key School’s Greek and Latin Roots program.

Students will learn a writing formula that enables them to structure their thoughts for coherency. The formula includes steps to revision, editing, and preparing a final copy.

The vocabulary development is especially beneficial for students preparing to take standardized tests such as the SAT or ACT.
