SUMMER STUDY SKILLS

The goal of this 4-6 week summer program is to teach students different methods of approaching academic material for maximum content retention. Students will learn how to efficiently survey textbooks and take structured notes that allow for consistent and powerful review of difficult material. In addition to different methods of approaching academic content, students will learn to create a schedule for reviewing course material. As the course progresses, the teacher will focus on developing the student’s writing, word knowledge and vocabulary. Champion’s Summer Study Skills program has been developed by our senior Humanities teacher, James Walsh, and is designed to be customized for the individual learning needs of each student. We begin the process with a free consultation in which parents and students are encouraged to discuss the academic challenges they would like to address, and to set concrete goals for the summer, as well as for the upcoming academic year.
