Middle School Reading

Entering Grades 5-8

This intensive three-hour course, designed for Middle School students who need a little extra practice in literature and reading fundamentals, meets daily for four weeks. An excellent opportunity for students in grades 5 through 8 to strengthen reading and writing skills, the program focuses specifically on comprehension, reading fluency, visualization, vocabulary and critical thinking.
SummerEdge’s low student-faculty ratio ensures that each Intensive Reading student receives personal attention and support. Teachers administer 
pre- and post-assessments to document improvement. At the end of the program, teachers write a report on each student’s progress, strengths and areas needing continued support.


To register for Middle School Intensive Reading, please complete the SummerEdge online application first. Please note that a brief screening will take place on the first day of the program. This is intended to help our staff determine where to place each child within the group based on their academic needs. Your child does not need to study or prepare for this screening.
