Put a STOP to the Summer Slide!

Summer at Guthrie is the most spectacular summer school program offered in the area. We take a personal interest in each student and his or her family. We take pride in developing relationships and nurturing each student to develop confidence and bring out his or her full social and academic potential.

Morning Summer at Guthrie Details

Get ahead for the next grade level!

Each three hour academic session is a “mini” academic school day with each week’s curriculum being self-contained. This means that if a student misses a week or more during the summer for a vacation, he or she will be able to resume seamlessly. Our students love to learn and there is NO HOMEWORK!

Each weekly class includes:

  • Two teacher-led, interactive Language Arts units including 2 reading selections (from a variety of genres), the accompanying vocabulary for each, and reading comprehension, including main idea and details, author’s purpose and point of view, organizational structure, drawing conclusions and inferences. We emphasize group discussion and participation to develop oral speaking skills.
  • A week-long writing prompt (covering a variety of writing genres) that fully develop the writing process from brainstorming, organization, rough drafts, editing, final drafts, publishing and presenting. The students present their work to the group orally each week to practice and hone speaking skills.
  • 50 minutes of math daily to reinforce and strengthen academic skills learned in school. We stop the summer slide and help our students develop confidence and problem solving skills.
  • Weekly critical thinking and logic skills class to develop “outside the box” thinking and maximize testing confidence. For our older students, this includes ISEE and PSAT work.
