Research shows that small group instruction is beneficial for 25 minutes, 2 to 3 times a week. Our summer sessions meet two or three times a week (depending on session) for 25 minutes for 4 or 6 weeks. (Students may enroll in 2 sessions). We offer daytime or evening sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.   Registration is $99. Reading assessments are administered for placement as part of the registration. The reading assessment may take 30-50 minutes. Sign up by June 13th and the registration/assessment fee will be waived!
