Summer Programs

Providing students with the critical learning skills they need during the summer months.

Our Summer School has moved to July 6 – 30. We will have in place all protocols recommended by the CDC and the Johnson County Health Department.

View the Horizon Academy Infectious Disease Prevention Plan for the summer program. 

Our summer school program provides students the opportunity to sustain the growth they have achieved during the school year. Students will participate in small instructional groups with a focus in reading, written expression and math. Core classes provide each student with experience in the Orton-Gillingham approach, Multisensory Math, and learning strategies in written expression, comprehension and study skills. Students will become strategic learners as they develop time management, self-advocacy and social skills. The curriculum is adapted to meet the needs of each student to ensure that he/she experiences school success. 

Many students considering Horizon Academy’s school year program attend the summer program as a way to see if we are the right fit for the student’s needs. Horizon Academy may, in some cases, request that a student attend summer school as we evaluate a student’s placement in the school year program. Enrollment for summer school begins mid-January of each year.

Orton-Gillingham Tutoring

Testing documentation with diagnosis of dyslexia or specific learning disability in reading and writing is required.
Orton-Gillingham is an instructional approach intended primarily for use with persons who have difficulty with reading, spelling and writing of the sort associated with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. This multisensory approach is diagnostic, prescriptive, systematic, structured, and personalized to meet the needs of the learner.

Supportive Tutoring

  • Written Expression – Tutors will use research-based and multisensory writing strategies. The sequence of the writing process and 6-traits of writing will be addressed. Students will learn the essential structure and vocabulary of essay writing from prewriting to polishing.
