The Piedmont School 2019 Summer Enrichment Program

“The Piedmont School summer experience will be challenging, exciting, rewarding, and one that you will never forget! There is nothing else like it in the Triad so sign up early, buckle your chin strap, and prepare yourself for a wonderful ride.” 

– Tim Montgomery, Head of School 

Basic Information

The Piedmont School offers a 5-week summer program that has a combination of academic 

summerenrichment

and interactive enrichment activities for rising Kindergarten through rising 6th graders. Taught by an experienced and credentialed staff, our program is open to students needing academic remediation or students looking to excel their current skill level. 

The Piedmont School Summer Enrichment Program offers a half day option that includes small group (1:6 ratio) enhancement activities in reading, writing, and math in the morning while the afternoon is spent in enrichment activities that include Drama/Art, PE-related activities, and a STEM-focused enrichment week.

Academic Sessions: 

The Piedmont School Summer Enrichment Program offers morning sessions from 8:00am-11:00am. During this time we offer blocks of reading, writing/language arts, and math in a small group instruction environment (1:6 teacher to student ratio). 

During the academic sessions of the program, initial assessments will be completed to give a benchmark of each student's independent skill level in each subject area. The goal of our academic program is to maintain student progress that they have maintained during their school year and many of our students also see academic gains in the summer. Our goal is to keep each student from regressing over the summer break.

camp attendees, at which children will have the opportunity to give brief

presentations on the artwork they have created each week.

We will review the primary, secondary, and tertiary colors again. Then, we will

learn about oil pastels, soft pastels and the techniques we can use to mix

and blend them to achieve beautiful artwork. Pastels, paper, and canvases

will be provided, but children are welcome to bring their own if they wish to

magazines, plastic bottles, bottle caps, cardboard boxes, paper towel rolls,

etc. However, a variety of materials will be provided.
