Week-long Skills Program
For Dyslexic Children
Specifically designed to build foundational skills over the summer.
Hands-on project-based curriculum gives your child meaningful and fun ways to apply the skills they're being taught. Students will understand the way their brains work as our highly trained, dedicated educators teach them to use their visual-spatial strengths when learning through multi-sensory, skills-based instruction that engages.
Children at our summer program explore their passions and build on their strengths while getting an educational confidence boost.

"He was able to learn reading, writing, and math strategies that he uses to this day. The small classes allowed him to make friends quickly and connect with his teachers. The fact that he came home each day talking about how much fun he had was a huge bonus. Just what we were looking for! Summer at Athena Academy was a fantastic program for my dyslexic child." – Parent of 3rd grade child
"My son looks forward to camp every year and always has so many positive things to say after. They have a great curriculum with many hands-on learning activities! So happy we found Athena Academy camp."– Parent of 3rd grade child
"We tried several summer programs over the years and this was the one and only program that our daughter came home smiling and excited to go back! Summer "school" was finally not a struggle. She was actually learning while getting to know like-minded kids and teachers who understood her. She truly found where she belonged at Athena. The summer program at Athena Academy was everything we didn't know we needed" – Parent of 7th grade child
"My daughter has been to summer school at Athena for a couple of years, and she always enjoys it. As always, the teachers were amazing." – Parent of 5th grade child
