Best of Basics Summer Student Program

Our 25th summer Best of Basics program will run July 8-August 2, 2019

registration will open in spring 2019

Our annual Best of Basics Summer Program helps students in a way that a regular summer school cannot. We welcome students - those with learning and attention difficulties as well as those looking to prevent the summer slide. Our small group classes and one-on-one options focus on building skills using the multi-sensory, phonemic approach known as the Orton-Gillingham Approach.

Please read our class cancellation/withdrawal policy here.

Scholarships are available! Apply here.

Best of Basics includes:

Multisensory instruction by specially-trained teachers that has proven exceptionally effective for students of all ages.

A small group learning environment with students of like skills (average 4-6 students).

Review & reinforcement of vital, foundational skills to help prevent the summer slide.

A boost for students before school resumes.

A short pre-screening to determine skill level for each student.

Option to purchase ten 1:1 tutoring sessions at a discount.

Several online options!
