Summer Enrichment 2017
Monday – Friday
June 12 – July 7
The Summer Enrichment program at Trident Academy is designed for rising 1st through 6th grade students who are struggling in reading/language and/or math skills. Based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, three 1-hour sessions are being offered where students will be involved in small-group, multi-sensory learning that is interactive and fun! Lessons will address the individual needs of each child and provide the needed practice and reinforcement in reading, writing, and math skills. Students will be organized into age appropriate groups with similar skill levels. You may register for one, two, or all three sessions.
1st session 8:15 – 9:15
2nd session 9:30 – 10:30
3rd session 10:45 – 11:45
For the first class $850
For a second class an additional $750

A non-refundable deposit of $125 is due at the time of registration — registration is not complete until deposit is received. This will be applied to the total cost of tuition and the remainder of the balance is due prior to the first day of class. . Please mail your check to Trident Academy, 1455 Wakendaw Road, Mt. Pleasant, SC, 29464 or register online at Summer Enrichment 2017
Language Enrichment and Development
The focus of this class is to remediate and strengthen reading skills with alphabetic/phonetic instruction. Through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning, students will understand the sound-symbol association of letters and learn strategies for blending sounds into words. Decoding concepts and useful spelling generalizations will be introduced as well.
Reading Comprehension and Applied Writing
In this class, students will apply concrete strategies for comprehending what they read. Students will have opportunities to build reading fluency with daily reinforcement as well. In applied writing, the focus will be centered on the individual needs of the student from writing posture and letter formation to sentence structure and paragraph development.
This unique program offers a hands-on approach to learning math. Students build skills through sequential, incremental instruction with consistent review. Through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning, students will gain knowledge of math concepts appropriate to their specific skill level.
In order to group students appropriately, each child must be assessed prior to the June 13th start date. The cost of testing is included in the tuition and should last approximately one hour. For those registering for just one or two sessions, the session times will be determined after all student assessments have been completed. Elizabeth Alexander, Director of OutReach, will contact you to schedule your child’s assessment.
Students are expected to attend all scheduled days of the four week program. There are no discounts for siblings or reimbursement for days missed.
