ACADEMIC MORNINGS

K-8

Building Confidence in the Classroom 

Students in our elementary program build and reinforce reading and writing skills with the Wilson Reading System®, eventually progressing to time-tested approaches to improving comprehension and expository writing. Using multi-sensory instruction and enVision’s® unique blend of problem-based and visual learning, your student will hone a deep, conceptual understanding of math. The Responsive Classroom approach at the heart of our teaching ensures your student will start the school year with a newfound sense of the classroom as a place of joyful engagement.

9-10

Laying the Groundwork for Secondary Success 

Rising freshmen and sophomores focus on everything from study skills to anxiety management and from public speaking to self-advocacy in a series of expert-led courses. With an emphasis on executive functioning, our program for early high schoolers cultivates confidence in the classroom and beyond, readying your student for the exciting transitions and decisions that await. 

11-12

Bridging the Gap between High School and College 

Demystify post-secondary success for your student with a summer focused on oral and written communications, math concepts for college readiness, and study skills for the 2020s. Our summer college bridge program takes up rhetoric and research, credit cards and college loans, and assistive technology and testing accommodations—all of it designed to ensure your student starts college strong. 

ADVENTUROUS AFTERNOONS

Open to K-10 students, Adventurous Afternoons at Woodlynde School Summer Camp inspire wonder and curiosity outside the traditional classroom. For our younger students, a vibrant slate of activities like arts and crafts, outdoor play, swimming, horseback riding, and kayaking awaits. Older learners will get to choose their own extracurricular adventure with studio arts, music production, cinematography, robotics, and much more on offer.


WHY WOODLYNDE SUMMER WORKS



Expert Teachers

Woodlynde School Summer Camp is led and staffed by the same teachers, learning specialists, and counselors who have made Woodlynde the region’s leading college preparatory school for students who learn differently. With expert instructors guiding your student’s learning and play, you can rest assured they will have a summer experience that lasts a lifetime.

Differentiation Meets Scaffolding

Woodlynde’s teachers and learning specialists practice differentiated instruction, tailoring content, methods, materials, and even the classroom itself to meet your student where they are and monitoring their progress along the way. From there, learning is scaffolded so your student moves from guided practice to independent application, what we sometimes shorthand as an “I do. We do. You do.” approach to teaching.

Experiential Learning

With a Woodlynde teacher close at hand, everything from a miscalculated quotient to reaching the top of a rock-climbing wall is an opportunity to consider challenges, successes, and opportunities for growth. For students in our high school programs, this is taken even further through college campus visits and on-site learning exercises. College is closer than you think—and there’s no better way to prepare for your search than to experience campus life and services firsthand in Woodlynde’s program.
