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 mathematics course is offered at all elementary, middle, and high school levels. The curriculum builds for the student’s present knowledge base by reinforcing and then systematically introducing new skills in order to achieve the greatest degree of improvement.

A structured and sequential approach to solving word problems is included at all levels of math programs. By providing solution-based strategies, students learn how to translate the language into the operations required to complete the problem successfully.

Instruction for special mathematical concepts which must be mastered for standardized testing will be offered at each skill level. These include but are not limited to the following:

  • Basic facts
  • Multi-digit addition, subtraction, and multiplication
  • Long division
  • Fractions, decimals, and percents

An evaluation in mathematics, algebra, geometry, and testing concepts will be given on the first day to determine class placement.
