Hill Summer

Hill Summer provides five weeks of daily instruction in reading, writing, and math for students in rising 1-8 grades. Modeled after Hill School and based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, this program uses research-based methodologies and individualized, multisensory instruction, delivered in a 4:1 student-teacher ratio by caring, expert educators, to support students’ academic needs. Students are assessed at the start of the program and throughout to enable faculty to identify and target key instructional skills to help prepare students for the next school year. Additionally, executive function study skills are incorporated into lessons for the middle school students. Program features include a meet and greet with faculty, progress reports, and parent conferences.
