Herons Summer Academy runs Tuesday, June 20 through Friday, June 30 (9 days). Summer at Saint Andrew's is closed on Monday, June 19.
An extension of our Herons SOAR (Students On Academic Rise) program, Herons Summer Academy is a nine-day, language arts intensive program held during the summer. Students will work with Saint Andrew’s teachers to continue developing and strengthening their phonemic awareness, reading comprehension, reading fluency, and writing skills.
Space is limited in this program and priority will be given to Saint Andrew’s students who currently work with our learning specialist. If additional spaces become available, the following criteria must be met:
Saint Andrew's students who do not currently work with Mrs. Jones must have a referral from their homeroom teacher.
Non-Saint Andrew's students will be required to complete a pre-camp screening to determine eligibility and group placement.
Academy scholars will participate in a daily rotation of language arts-based programs. During their 2 weeks, scholars will also participate in one field trip with the rest of the summer camp, and one day each week of water play. At the end of the program, families will receive a report detailing what their child worked on during the program and any other observations from the camp staff about their academic progress.
