Read / Write & Math

Read/Write & Math Summer Programs

For children struggling to learn literacy or math skills, Read/Write & Math Online Programs range in intensity from 30 minutes per day to 2 hours per day. All programs are offered online and easily accessible from anywhere through a home computer using Zoom. Instruction is provided one-to-one with a trained Instructor using evidence-based practices that are customized to the student’s needs. The Instructors will engage in formative assessment as they work with the student and provide a summary report to you at the end of the program.

Due to health guidelines related to COVID-19, we need to have a limited number of people in our building this summer, so only one of our Read/Write & Math programs (“In-person Modified Intensive for Young Learners”) will be delivered onsite at Foothills Academy.  The rest of the programs will be delivered online via Zoom (FAQs for online delivery).

All of our programming continues to provide one-to-one remediation with a trained Instructor.  Our programs are built on evidence-based practices that are customized to the student’s needs.  The Instructors will engage in formative assessment as they work with the student, and a summary report will be provided to you at the end of the program.
