Prentice Summer Registration

The Prentice School offers a 20-day Summer Program composed of a variety of comprehensive educational classes to support students who learn differently. Our fun-filled afternoons include Summer Camp activities followed by extended Afterschool Care. Students can customize their summer schedule and choose a morning of academic enrichment or select an afternoon of fun camp activities, or both.

The program makes a dramatic difference in preparing students with learning differences such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD or anxiety to start the next academic year with new skills, new friends and renewed confidence. The Summer Program is open to all students (whether they attend Prentice or not) who would like to experience what Prentice has to offer. We welcome students from public schools, and our program qualifies as an Extended School Year (ESY).

These educational and fun-filled 20 days are a great way for students to maintain and improve the skills they’ve developed during the year, preventing the summer slide, while enabling them to receive valuable supplemental instruction.

We also offer summer workshops for parents and professionals who would like to learn more about how to help children who learn differently.



Reading, Writing and Math

Grades K-8      9 am – 12 pm       $1100  

Summer School Kids

Students will receive intensive reading intervention through Orton-Gillingham and Slingerland, two research-based structured literacy approaches. These approaches are explicit, direct, cumulative, intensive, and focused on the structure of language. They involve the use of visual, auditory, and kinesthetic-tactile pathways simultaneously to enhance memory and learning of written language.  Students will also receive guided practice in writing and math to build upon their foundational skills.

Non-Prentice parents only: Please have your child’s teacher complete the 2018 Teacher Recommendation Form and return to The Prentice School, attn: Pam Gordon or email to by June 1st.

Understanding Learning Differences

Prep for Life
Friday, July 6 – 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Presented by Prentice Faculty 
Vocabulary is one of the most important factors which drives a school-age child’s ability to learn new information. A student’s ability to use language is largely reliant on their semantic word knowledge. This workshop will review the semantic building blocks needed to “build up” word and world knowledge in your child, leading to better memory of new words, pragmatic and expressive language skills, and reading comprehension.

Friday, July 13 – 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM

Presented by Prentice Faculty  
Learn how to reduce anxiety, minimize symptoms of Sensory Processing Disorder and gain the tools to manage sensory needs.
