Summer Semester 2020
Cardigan Summer Semester is an opportunity for boys and girls entering grades 6-9 to enrich their knowledge in core academic areas alongside experienced teachers and students from around the world.
For one session this July, we will use advanced digital tools to engage daily in face-to-face discussions of Math and English topics, growing and learning together. Cardigan Summer Semester provides students with a balanced opportunity to brush up on a skill, apply what they have learned, keep their minds engaged over the summer, and prepare for new challenges in the Fall.
Our program is straight-forward: two classes per student, two total hours of class per day, a focus on Math and English, face-to-face classes, eight students/teacher, easily-accessible online course sites, experienced teachers familiar with middle school students, and individualized feedback to help your child grow as a student.
Most importantly, however, we bring what is uniquely Cardigan to this experience: a deep sense of caring, a belief in the power of healthy relationships to make a difference in learning, and an understanding of why middle school is one of the most important times in your child's personal and academic lives.
