Summer programs at Florida Prep start July 10th and run thru August 4th. Spaces are filling up fast! The summer months provide an excellent window of opportunity to help students improve grades, language and testing skills, to 'try out' boarding at Florida Prep and to socialize with other kids during the day. If you are wondering whether the Summer Program is right for you and your child, take 5 minutes to consider the following five things:
1. Advance in Academics
Most children struggle in at least one or more subjects. The summer provides a great opportunity to get ahead in math or English, and to improve important learning skills. With small class sizes, Florida Prep offers summer programs that can assist students with improving grades and test scores, improving study and time-management skills, and ensuring academic success!
2. Better than Babysitting
Summertime affords families the ability to spend quality time with each other, but many parents still hold down a Monday-through-Friday job. At Florida Prep, students get to spend each week making new friends from around the world, learning new skills, engaging in fun activities and mentored sports, and staying busy doing things they LOVE! Weekend trips to local beaches, state parks, and theme parks also make the summer fly by!
3. Language Comprehension
Children have an amazing aptitude for language learning. Florida Prep offers both an academic-year and summer-program geared toward helping international students improve their English language skills—unlocking opportunities to attend US colleges and Universities after graduation. This also provides US-based students with a rare opportunity to develop long-lasting friendships with boys and girls from 20+ other countries, and to learn firsthand about other languages and cultures!
4. Social Development
During the program your child will interact with children of different cultures and backgrounds. Living and learning together reinforces core values of ethics, honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Parents frequently report that after completing the summer program at Florida Prep their children better understand the importance of sharing and giving of themselves, and are more willing to be more responsible at school and at home.
5. Personal Enrichment
The summer academic, adventure and ESOL programs at Florida Prep are designed to provide boys and girls with a variety of opportunities for personal enrichment and academic growth, mentored exercise, making new friends... and having fun!
But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of last year’s summer students shared:
“I came for the academic program to bring up my grades. I had mixed feelings. It was a challenge but I found I really enjoyed it.”
- Angelina 8th grade day US
“We wanted to ‘try out’ the school before we made a commitment. Our son loved it”
- Parent of Julian 6th grade day US
“I came to improve my grades. When we returned for the school year I was on point and in the correct grade for my age. I really enjoyed the experience; we were kept very busy and involved all day. I also enjoyed the weekend trips. “
- Jake 9th grade boarder US
“I spent 4 weeks in the ESOL program last year and will return this year for academics. I enjoyed everything –the field trips as part of ESOL, the theme parks at the weekend. It was all a lot of fun and I felt like I had a second family.
There was not much free time; we had things organized all day. We were very focused —I liked that. Coming for the summer program gave me a taste of what it’s like to board at Florida Prep and I decided to enroll for the year.”
- Oleksandr 9th grade boarder Ukraine
“I came to redo my Algebra 1. The grade was having a negative impact on my GPA for college.”
- Trevor 11th grade boarder
