Summer Enrichment Program

by Glenwood Academy


The Summer Enrichment Program is offered to students in grades 2 through 8 who lack an adequate foundation for learning to read and write effectively. There are 2 three-week sessions that run during the summer to help new students get acclimated to the school and helps existing students make academic gains while they are out of school. The program provides experiences in reading fluency, expanded vocabulary, phonics, poetry and reading for pleasure.

When students enroll at Glenwood Academy, approximately 70% are two to three years below their grade level, some unable to read, apply basic concepts or participate effectively in the classroom. By working with students closely throughout the entire year, our students make great academic gains. Students are grouped by instructional level as determined by standardized testing and teacher recommendations to ensure the program yields the greatest impact.


To help students get back on track, the Summer Enrichment Program provides students an opportunity to sustain and improve academic skills in the areas of reading, language, math and cognitive processing skills. Students will participate in both pre- and post-evaluative measures to track progress.

Long-Term Impact

The expectation is that each student will increase in their knowledge, skills, and comprehension within their grade level, and that at least 25% of the students will gain one grade level. The programs used for the Summer Enrichment Program have built in assessments which build the individualized learning for each student. The programs also contain the post-testing which determines the level of gain for each individual student.
