June 3, 2020: We’re excited to announce that this summer, Morningside Academy will offer both in person and remote classes! For the past two months, our expert teachers and coaches have been working tirelessly to replicate the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction using remote platforms, and we’re really excited with what we have to offer. With Morningside’s remote summer classes, students will have a full 165 minutes of LIVE, group instruction! No homework packets and no homeschooling!
Students will get fast-paced, dynamic instruction on the specific skills that they most need, followed by guided practice to bring those skills to fluency. Morningside teachers will skillfully provide opportunities to apply these newly mastered skills to real-world situations! For in-person sessions, we’re carefully following the guidance of the Governor’s office and local health officials to provide the safest possible environment. Please know that we will send out updates as things progress.

Make school a breeze by building reading, writing, mathematics, thinking skills, study skills and organization skills at Morningside Academy this July! By building on existing academic skills and tailoring individualized and small-group instruction to meet each student’s needs, students develop motivation and pride in their accomplishments, build self-esteem, and self-concept. Combining research-based methods, including Precision Teaching, Talk Aloud Problem Solving, and direct instruction, leads to rapid academic progress for all students.

Students entering grades 2-9 catch up and get ahead, choosing from AM and/or PM sessions of Writing (handwriting, listening, speaking, vocabulary, grammar, composition, organizational skills,) Reading (decoding, phonemic awareness, comprehension, analytical reading, literature appreciation, organizational skills,) and Mathematics (from counting skills and arithmetic to algebra, problem solving, computation, organizational skills.)

Students entering grades 6-9 prepare for middle school and high school in Content Course Preparation (study skills, organizing material, paper layout, proofreading, test taking, textbook use, reference books, memorizing, answering questions, note taking.) This course is designed for proficient readers at or above grade level.

Each student who enrolls comes for placement testing prior to the summer program so that instructional time will not be taken up with testing. Based on assessment results, students will be enrolled in courses that best address academic deficits.

For students who qualify, four weeks of attendance guarantees 50% of a year’s growth (5 months) in the skill of greatest deficit or your money back!

Leisure activities are available before and after classes for an additional fee.

Teaching is adjusted until the student is successful. No one falls through the cracks. Practicing skills until they are fluent may be the most important part of what we do. Speed and accuracy together is what “fluency” is all about.
