Students are assessed at the start of the program, and throughout, to ensure we are meeting the child where they are. Program features include meet and greet with Faculty, open house, written progress reports, and parent conferences.

Hill Middle School Program

The Middle School Program immerses students in a thematic study of reading and writing strategies (comprehension, analytical and creative composition), math concepts, and executive function study skills. Instruction focuses on teaching students to summarize and analyze novel content, research topics and develop character sketches, use technology to engage in hands-on projects and research, participate in real-world math projects, and take notes, organize, and prepare for tests. This five-week program is designed to provide an academic boost for students seeking remediation in these core areas. Small-group (up to 5 students) and large-group instruction is utilized, as well as a team model to foster collaboration skills.
