About the Program

The Hamilton Summer Program is open to rising 2nd- to 7th-graders. It features classes that are taught by Hamilton School faculty and small in size (with a maximum of six children per class). Classes focus on literacy, including Orton-Gillingham work, fluency, reading comprehension, and written expression. They also include science workshops that support literacy skills and will occur throughout the weeks.

Each day there will be mid-morning recess. Parents should send their children with a snack and water bottle.
