Running Start for Reading

Columbia offers a 3-week reading program especially for beginning readers and students up to 4th grade who may need some extra help to become successful and fluent readers. Reading is a fundamental skill that's necessary for students to do well in school. This head-start on the school year helps students to adjust gently into the demands of the next grade's academic work. It also helps parents to address the "summer slide," where students forget a portion of what they learned in the previous year and come to school unprepared for the next semester. At Columbia, we use a proven phonics-based approach to reading, which builds on the recognition of letters with the memorization of sounds that can be assembled into meaningful words.

The class size is limited to 15 students, so early registration is encouraged. The cost for students not enrolled at Columbia is $375 for the whole three-week program, to be paid in advance. The program begins August 1 and runs every weekday through August 19 from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m. The campus opens at 8 a.m. and closes at 3:15 p.m. Students should bring a labeled bag lunch and a snack. A refrigerator is available for keeping lunches through the morning.

Parents may register their children through the online Registration page, and send or bring a check to the school when it's convenient. If we run out of space, priority will be given to any kindergarteners or first graders who are enrolling at Columbia for the first time. Space permitting, enrolled Columbia students up to fourth grade may attend at no additional cost. (Please inform the school by the July 25th deadline if you wish to participate.) Otherwise, students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

The enrollment deadline is July 25th for all students.
