SIENA'S ACADEMIC SUMMER SCHOOL
Since mid-March, Siena's distance learning plan on Zoom has successfully engaged students in daily, 100% live, face to face, high-level, individualized and multisensory instruction. The summer teachers look forward to bringing their school year teaching experience into the virtual summer classroom.
Each day of academic programming will run from 8:30 am - 12:00 pm with built-in breaks and social time (sample schedule below). By the end of May, we will share a video link for you to watch a sample virtual class and observe what our online learning looks like.
Our academic summer school provides students with mild to moderate language-based learning differences entering grades 4-9th with a positive instructional experience that works on review, reinforcement, and enhancement of academic skills. Small classes and a nurturing environment provide fun and creative learning opportunities in reading, writing, and math skills and concepts.
Siena's summer program uses the same curriculum and teaching methods that are employed at the day school. Instruction is tailored to each student's individual needs, and all classes are multisensory and designed to support student achievement in a relaxed but rigorous setting.
Watch a video example of what virtual instruction is like for students.
