Summer @ Chartwell

Join us for our Extended School Year Programs that are academically focused and open to any student who would benefit from individualized instruction.



Student Summer Program Descriptions

Morning Core Program | June 14 - July 12 | M-F, 8:30-Noon

June 14 through July 12 | 8:30 am to noon | Monday through Friday (except July 4)

Family Orientation Friday, June 14. CORE Program starts Monday, June 17.

For 35 years, Chartwell School has been the leader on the Central California Coast in educating children with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia. Chartwell's Summer CORE Program is academically focused and open to students who would benefit from specialized instruction or would like to maintain progress achieved over the preceding academic year. It is also a unique opportunity for students not enrolled in the year-long program at Chartwell to benefit from a research-based, student-centered education.

Our goal is to guide children toward becoming healthy, curious, and confident learners. The summer program is also a great way for students entering Chartwell in the fall to become acquainted with our faculty, their peers, and our “green” campus. This head start ensures a smooth and successful transition.

Literacy Skills: students develop reading skills, reading comprehension skills, writing, organization and study skills.

STEAM/Makers program: students practice principles of science through technology, engineering, art, and mathematics while answering an essential question using a hands-on and project-based-learning model.

*Optional: CORE participants may also elect to enroll for a two week Afternoon Enrichment Reading Clinic for an additional $500. See descriptions below.
