Summer@Carroll is a unique educational experience designed for children with language-based learning disabilities entering grades 1-9 in the Fall. Carroll’s five-week, full-day program provides specialized reading support as well as writing and math classes. Most summer students do not necessarily attend Carroll in the regular school year. Classes are formed according to age and ability, typically with eight or fewer students in a class. Students entering grades 1-7 receive daily individualized reading and spelling instruction from tutors trained in the Orton-Gillingham language approach. Our teachers, tutors, and counselors come from Carroll School and a variety of other greater Boston area schools, colleges, and high schools.
2014 Tuition Rates (includes all academic & camp costs; excludes lunch):
Beginning Readers $4,340
High School Readiness $5,175
After a morning of academic classes, students break into small camper groups led by experienced counselors, many of whom are also teachers of academic classes. These groups stay together throughout the five weeks, forming friendships, and developing group skills. The afternoons are full of activities such as indoor and outdoor games, arts and crafts, local field trips, swimming at Walden Pond, as well as field trips to ocean side beaches and into Boston.
In both school work and camp fun, Summer@Carroll is designed to be an intensive learning experience that is academically and socially rewarding…the best of both worlds!
