A Complete Educational and Recreational Program for First through Eighth Graders
The Kittredge Summer Program offers the best of both worlds. Students keep their academic skills sharp with an academic session each morning, and engage in various active and fun pursuits each afternoon. The summer program is available to Kittredge students as well as to students enrolled in other schools.
Students may enroll for the morning academic portion only, or for the the full day, academic/recreational program. Extended Day care is available both before classes begin, as early as 7:45 in the morning, and until 6:00 in the afternoon.
Small class size, 15 students or less, allows our credentialed teachers to engage the students in a variety of activities designed to enrich their academic foundations and keep them involved and interested in learning. To assure the most productive educational setting, students are quickly assessed at the start of the session and placed in learning groups not by grade alone, but by achievement level as well. Reading, writing and math are emphasized, but elements of science, art, music and more are also incorporated into the academic day.
Each afternoon supervised study, recreational and educational activities are provided in conjunction with the Morning Academic Program. Daily walking trips in the neighborhood enliven the day. Typical destinations include Mountain Lake, various parks and playgrounds in the neighborhood, Presidio National Park, and Baker Beach. Arts and crafts, sports and games, building blocks, music and legos are among the indoor activities available.
