Summer Program

Our beautiful 12 acre campus has the ultimate "camp feel" during the warmer weather. These seven week programs offer students an enriched summer experience with plenty of time outside. Using evidence-based teaching strategies, educators challenge students to explore their strengths, find new ways to learn, create friendships, participate in cooperative games and physical activities, all with a big emphasis on having fun!

 

The Summer Programs are ideal for students who will benefit from structured learning to maintain skills and learn new skills during the break from school. 

Aspire Academy

What to expect:

Aspire Academy

Explorers Summer Program: This level is ideal for students who require enhanced learning in a therapeutic summer program. With 2 educators for every 3 students, our educators are able to give each student the individualized guidance and support they need to flourish.

Challengers Summer Program: This level is ideal for elementary students with mild learning difficulties, language difficulties, autism  and/or other neurodevelopmental disorders. With 1 educator for every 3 students, the students will receive ample support while also developing independence skills within the group.

Both groups will explore a variety of outdoor activities including yoga, hiking, water play, sports and group games. Afternoon indoor activities will include art projects, computer coding and hands on experiments. Activities are led by the interests of the students in the group to ensure maximum enjoyment and participation. 

1-to-1 Therapy: Students who benefit from 1-to-1 intensive teaching can register for a limited-time, 7 week program. With this option, our clinical team identifies a small set of goals which will be targeted intensively throughout the summer months to prepare the student for the setting they are heading to in September.
