Hours: 9:00– 11:30 am for rising 6th and 7th grade students. 12:30-3:00 pm for rising 8th and 9th grade students.
Ages: Rising 6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th graders. All lessons are grade specific and many campers benefit from returning for multiple years.
Fees: $290 for one week
Staff: Mr. Andrew Reed, Head of the Middle School, directs and teaches the program. Mr. Alex Berthe, 7th-grade teacher, and a variety of other Heights faculty assist.
Notes: Summer Reading Essays and Assignments will be worked on until completed properly. Drafts will be revised, corrected, and resubmitted until completely finished. This is accomplished through a one to one ratio with the help of a workshop staff.
Handouts and materials will be provided each day according to the grade specific lessons and the habits examined that day. The purpose of this well developed workshop curriculum is the personal ownership of academic habits and students have benefitted from this program and the instructor's approach for two decades.
Students will be offered a short break after each hour lesson in class and are given an opportunity to spend time together, catch up, and welcome new students. Students may bring a drink and a snack for the breaks.
Dress code is simply a shirt with a collar and shorts are acceptable. Non- Heights students are welcome as well as prospective students because the academic habits learned from this program are universally valuable in any school setting.
