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 full 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.

Morning 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.
