The Summer Tutoring Program offers three two-week sessions with morning and afternoon classes. The actual tutoring of subject material is mixed with activities that remove the drudgery of being in school during the vacations. Children who attend these sessions are able to return to school to their regular classes in September without having fallen behind by forgetting what was taught the previous year.
