When the calendar turns to June, it’s time to roll out our summer programming. In the strange world of today, we have had to make some adjustments to our usual bill of fare. This year we are offering all of our programs online. The summer options provide academic support, entertainment, life skills, and socialization.
Families may contact us to arrange for one-to-one tutoring sessions to address any areas of scholastic concern. These tutorials typically last an hour and occur several times each week on a schedule that fits the families’ needs. Email Brian Uitvlugt (email@example.com) for more information.
Independent Study Program (ISP)
Students in ISP are meeting with instructors “face-to-face” online for their individually scheduled sessions. They may be completing courses from the 2019-20 school year or working ahead to ease their academic load for 2020-21. Each student’s schedule is designed to accommodate both vacations and summer jobs. Visit our ISP page and email Brian Uitvlugt (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
As learning went online after the onset of COVID-19, our LEAP instructors created an excellent online version of their life skills and job support programming. They will continue to offer the five-hour day on a weekly basis. Virtual LEAP is a great opportunity for young adults to develop their social skills and their understanding of the employment world from the comfort of their own homes.
