High School Readiness Program (grades 8-9)
Who Should Attend?
Student Profile: High School Readiness (HSR) is a program for students preparing to move on to high school. The academic focus is on improving executive functioning skills. HSR applicants may have Language-Based Learning Disabilities (LBLD). However, Orton-Gillingham tutoring is not offered in the HSR program. Issues of executive function deficits are addressed with an emphasis on writing and the related organizational and planning skills involved. Each applicant should have had some testing and evaluation within the last three years. Our academic approach is cognitive in nature so potential students need to be at least in the average range of intellectual ability. Many Summer@Carroll applicants are on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) but this is not a requirement. Summer@Carroll is not designed to meet the needs of students with primary emotional or behavioral difficulties.
