Summer school in Shelton: Improve skills and pursue interests

The Shelton Summer Learning Program provides a way to extend a child’s school year or enrich a child’s summer with fun and active learning activities.

The Shelton Board of Education’s summer program will offer courses July 8 to Aug. 8, on Monday through Thursday, at Shelton Intermediate School.

Last summer, more than 200 students — ranging in age from preschool through high school juniors — attended the five-week program.

The program has undergone many changes in the past few years, incorporating the most recent educational theories and models to instruct students.

Reading, math, English and science

Students in grades one through six can benefit from courses that focus instruction on their specific need in reading development. Courses are composed of students who have similar reading levels and interests.

Students at the middle and high school levels can improve their skills and knowledge in math, English and science, assisted by small class sizes.

The program also includes a variety of enrichment courses for students with various interests. The goal is to create an environment where students want to come to learn outside of the regular school year.
