Summer at Gow
The Gow School Summer Program
June 25 - July 29, 2017
Our five-week program is designed for students ages 8–16 who possess the potential to excel but who have struggled in school or who have been diagnosed with such learning disabilities as dyslexia, central auditory processing disorder, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and ADD.
“Summer school” doesn’t begin to cover Gow’s exciting and challenging summer program, designed for students who have been experiencing academic difficulties or who have language-based learning differences. Employing the expertise that has made The Gow School a leader in language remediation, the summer program helps participants improve academic performance by teaching skills as well as material, enhancing confidence, and instilling discipline and sportsmanship. It also provides plenty of opportunities for enrichment, recreation, new experiences, and fun.
Participants may board in dorms on the beautiful Gow campus or, if they live locally, attend for the day only. A balanced blend of morning academics, afternoon recreation, and weekend overnight trips creates a positive experience with pronounced results: academic progress, rekindled interest, and heightened self-esteem. It provides the jump-start many students need for renewed enjoyment and success in school.
A leader and innovator in dyslexia education with a commitment to the values of kindness, respect, honesty and hard work, The Gow School Summer Program provides an academic program that helps students experiencing academic difficulties, or who have language-based learning differences, rediscover the joy of learning in a camp-like setting that focuses on enhancing self-esteem and establishing positive long term friendships.
