For 39 years the Lewis School of Princeton has offered its unique Summer Study Program to bright students, including those from other area schools. This year’s session begins Monday, June 25, and registration is now open.
The four-week program, which ends on July 20, includes two components: a morning academic session and an afternoon enrichment session.
The morning academic session runs 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and features integrated, multisensory classes to strengthen students’ academic skills and reinforce the essential mechanics of language. The morning session is open to all levels, from pre-school to upper school, and college preparatory.
The afternoon enrichment session is open only to students who attend the morning session and runs noon to 3 p.m. It offers a wide variety of hands-on discovery learning programs in both enrichment subjects and athletics. The afternoon enrichment program is open to lower, middle, and upper school students. Students in both sessions are encouraged to bring a healthy snack and drink for the morning and afternoon breaks.
“We see a real difference in a student’s approach to learning and studying based on skills learned in the morning session,” said Cathy Byers, director of public relations and communications. “The skills and strategies taught in the morning are also reinforced in the afternoon enrichment program by learning specialists trained at the Lewis School.”
The four weeks were designed as a bridge connecting the by-gone school year and the one yet to come to allow children to confidently plant both feet on the ground and, with courage, march across. The Lewis School is a community rich with dynamic and nurturing teaching: a place where learning arts-integrated, individualized, multi-sensory processes and strategies will engage the many capacities and senses of the brain.
Current students, as well as students from other schools, have found the Summer Study Program beneficial in reinforcing the foundations of learning and in repairing those skills that are not yet well-developed. Each summer brings countless success stories among the hundreds of Lewis School students — and even more alumni — who have found their true potential as scholars, professionals, artists, and human beings.
“These stories are the reason the Lewis School exists nearly 40 years after we first opened our doors,” Byers added. “Perhaps this summer will be the beginning of your child’s success story.”
The Lewis School is a private, nonprofit, coeducational day school for students with learning differences related to dyslexia, auditory processing, and attention deficit. Afternoon education and speech therapy are available, as are independent, comprehensive educational evaluations (by appointment).
