The Glenholme School, a therapeutic boarding school for students with autism spectrum disorders and various learning differences, opens enrollment to its 2015 Summer Program which will begin on July 6 and run through August 21. Young people, ages 10 to 18, can chose from three enrollment options: Session One in July is four weeks, Session Two in August is three weeks, and the Full Summer Session runs for seven weeks.
Continuing education through the summer months is essential for young people with learning differences and summer programs are favorable. Glenholme’s Summer Program boasts a unique enrichment opportunity where students can get a jump start on their next school year — socially and academically. The summer sessions provide individualized academic instruction in extended periods of small class sizes by experienced special educators. While Mathematics and English are the main focus for most summer students, some may be enrolled in an on-line learning course.
There is also dedicated time for social instruction through recreational activities during the summer. The afternoons boast a wide array of community activities including music, arts, drama, dance, go karts, horseback riding and team athletics. Students will experience a healthy balance of structure and freedom, as they work through the complex challenges of getting along with a new group of peers, learning how to advocate for assistance, and developing a new sense of autonomy.
Through it all, young people with learning differences make new friendships, gain confidence, as well as hone their academic skills in the Glenholme Summer Program. By actively participating in a positive and nurturing school setting, students experience a newfound sense of community and belonging- an essential aspect of each child’s enrichment.
Fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, The Glenholme School provides a comprehensive curriculum for students of all ability levels that leads to a high school diploma.
