LANDMARK COLLEGE A new way to look at learning – and yourself!

EAGLE HILL SCHOOL Greenwich, CT

“My daughter truly enjoyed her time at Eagle Hill and I could tell how much she learned. The teachers worked with her to grow and learn to enjoy learning. Her reading instruction was amazing - the teacher really connected with my daughter.” - Summer 2019 Parent Learning. Transformed. July 6-31 Eagle Hill’s Summer Program is so much more than a traditional “summer school”. Class sizes are small, learning is multi-sensory, students are grouped according to skill rather than grade level, and classes are primarily taught by Eagle Hill faculty. Academic instruction is based on the individual needs of our students, whether your student has a learning difference or just needs additional learning support to be better prepared for September. Our program offers a variety of ways for your student to get the academic and social support they need: • Academics in the morning • Fun summer activities in the afternoon • A social skills group The academic programs run from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Each student participates in a language arts/tutorial class each day, as well as three additional classes in: reading, writing, mathematics, and study skills. The afternoon activity program is from 1-3:30 p.m. This program immerses children in a fun and energetic program with field trips, games, crafts, and more. New this year is a two-week dorm option, which gives students a sleepaway camp experience close to home with the structure of the Eagle Hill program and the expertise of our faculty. Early bird pricing is available until April 30, 2020. Visit eaglehillschool.org/summer-program for pricing and more information.

Landmark College began offering summer programs in 2002 as a short-term alternative to its successful undergraduate model of teaching students with learning differences, such as dyslexia, ADHD, autism, or executive function challenges. The shorter programs also provided an opportunity for students who did not have an officially diagnosed learning difference to learn skills and strategies that better prepared them for college life.

Today, Landmark College summer programs provide opportunities to a wide range of students. In addition, summer programs are offered at satellite locations on the campus of UC- Berkeley and in partnership with the Johnson & Wales University Denver campus. All programs enable students

to identify their learning strengths and differences, teaching them specific strategies to be successful in formal academic settings and grow personally in an intentional and supportive community. Equally important, the programs incorporate fun activities with peers that help them acclimate to the social aspect of college outside the classroom. “My time at Landmark was well spent,” said Aaron Kahn-Bork, a student who enrolled in the High School Program. “I attended classes that I’d chosen. At the same time, I was learning about the brain and strategies for excelling and during free time I become closer every day with some of the best people I’d ever met.” High School Summer Program – Traditional Track (July 12 – August 1) For rising high school juniors and seniors who find it challenging to keep pace academically and want the chance to experience college.
