Summer Language and Math Programs (Rising K - 3rd)

Summer Language Programs for Rising K to 3rd graders
This summer your child can begin learning a new language or continue to strengthen their foreign language skills. We will have two sessions of Spanish and one of French. Children will learn about different and interesting topics on countries that speak the language they are studying. Our instructors are native speakers, most of which are part of the Beauvoir Language Programs during the school year. 

Math Camp for Rising 2nd & 3rd graders -
This two week math program is designed to help your summer student not only retain what they have learned when it comes to math but progress with their mathematical thinking, understanding and problem-solving with a carefully crafted curriculum. This focused and structured camp will help combat the “summer slip” that some students experience when school is out of session. This summer session is designed for rising 2nd and rising 3rd graders. Our instructors are current Beauvoir teachers.

For these half day programs, you can add Make Your Own Options for the other half of the day for Rising 1st-3rd grade. For the rising K, you can do the half day Blue Jay Journey program.
