Texas Summer Programs

Great Hearts Summer Programs

In order to ensure the continued safety of our students and teachers, we will not be running our Co-Curricular Summer Camp, Kinder Readiness or Summer School programs this summer (Summer 2020). This is a difficult decision for us because of the impact it has on our families. However, we do not feel that we can run a safe and fun program for our scholars while practicing social distancing. We will offer full refunds to any families who have already registered for a summer program. Those refunds will begin being processed on May 13th. If you have any questions specifically related to refunds, please reach out to Verona Labrador at Programs@GreatHeartsTX.org.

In the meantime, free Virtual Athenaeum YouTube videos will still be available to all families. You can access those videos by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8UyUmxS7VL0eo0tuQzYtSr77hEr8nn_1 

We continue to prepare for Fall 2020 After-School Athenaeum and look forward to having an exciting year with our scholars. Registration for the Athenaeum After-School Program and Homework Club begins May 12th.


 

Summer Programs consist of Kinder Readiness for new incoming kindergarten students, Summer School for grades 1st-5th, and Summer Camp for grades 1st-5th.

Kinder Readiness

  • Daily, four hour camp designed to help students transition to the classroom community with ease.
  • Students will practice fundamental skills, following directions and learn teacher expectations from our veteran teachers.
  • Students will learn the joy that comes from learning to demonstrate self-control, build confidence through accomplishing new tasks and start making new friends.
  • Students will wear the academy uniform as outlined in the family handbook.

Summer School: Spalding and Singapore Math

  • Designed for current and new to Great Hearts students who would benefit from work with experienced Great Hearts teachers.
  • Teachers will introduce and review Spalding phonograms through oral and written review. Students will practice frequently misspelled words, rules, and markings for the previous grade level’s Ayer’s list. Students will also work on reading fluency and encoding to improve overall accuracy.
  • Students will be introduced to and use the Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract model to explore the “why” behind challenging math concepts foundational to the previous year’s level. This may include number sense, number bonds, place value, word problems, math computation, mental math, fractions, and geometry.
  • Summer School runs from 8:15 am to 12:15 pm Monday through Friday. Scholars attending this program have the option to register for Summer Camp for the afternoon at a discounted price.

Summer Camp:

  • Engages scholars in relevant learning activities throughout the summer months.
  • Open to current Great Hearts students and waitlisted families.
  • Campers are grouped appropriately by age for all activities and supervised by trained teachers.
  • Uniforms NOT required! Any Great Hearts purchased shirt or solid color shirt allowed. Sneakers and shorts highly encouraged (navy, khaki and black only, not form fitting or above thigh, athletic shorts allowed). NO flip-flops or sandals.
  • Theme-related presenters will be a part of each week’s unique schedule.
  • Friendship, citizenship, and laughter seen and heard, Monday – Friday!
