It’s Not Too Late to Sign Up for the Kittredge Summer Program!
You don’t want to miss out on this year’s summer program, which runs from Tuesday, June 20 through Friday, July 21.
Summer School is broken up into three parts of the day:
Morning Academic Program: 9am-12pm
The Kittredge Morning Academic Program emphasizes the basic skills of mathematics, reading, and English language arts. Our small class size (maximum of 15 students) allows each teacher to engage the students in a variety of activities to enrich their academic foundation, keeping them involved and interested in learning. Students are assessed and placed in learning groups not by grade alone, but by achievement level as well. Tuition is $1750.00 for the 5-week academic session.
Afternoon Enrichment Classes 12pm-3pm
Arts and crafts, music, poetry, and other recreational activities will be available during these hours.
Field trips will take place on Friday afternoons and will round out these fun days. Students will walk to Baker Beach, the Presidio and a variety of local playgrounds.
Extended Day Program: 7:45am-9am & 3pm-6pm
Activities, puzzles, games, supervised study, and quiet reading time are available in conjunction with the Morning Academic Program. A snack will be provided at 4:30pm. The Afternoon Enrichment Classes plus the Extended Day program are $650.00 for the 5-week after school session.
The deadline for summer registration is Monday, May 15.
