Summer Therapy ProgramsFor Continued Academic Stimulation
Tutoring Services are offered to students who would benefit from continued academic stimulation throughout the summer months. Maintaining knowledge learned and previewing academics for the coming school year are designed to help a student to start the new year with confidence. Our programs “nourish” the brain with fun but structured lessons. Students earn prizes for completing home assignments and for good class participation. Class sizes are limited, allowing for directed attention to individual student needs. A licensed certified speech-language pathologist teaches the class, with a graduate student serving as an assistant when the pupil/teacher ratio is more than 1 to 3. This is a tuition based educational program. Insurance is not filed for children opting to participate in this program.
Academic Scholars meets once a week for 6 weeks for a 2 ½ hour session. Grade levels offered include pre-K for students entering kindergarten, as well as all elementary grades, through pre-5th. All academics (math, reading, writing, spelling, vocabulary, etc.) are presented in the Academic Scholars. Curriculum is based on the Tennessee State Department of Education Standards.
Reading Scholars is offered for students who need a specific boost in reading skills. Students are grouped according to ability level and specific needs.

During the course of fun, structured lessons, strategies are taught to enhance reading comprehension. Classes meet once a week for six weeks and last 1 to 2 hours depending on the size of the group and the individual student needs.
