We give each child what they most need - and that doesn't stop in the summer. Our summer school programs for children with language-based learning difficulties cater to the educational needs of students— from teaching decoding skills to reinforcing skills learned during the school year to preparing kids for high school.
Summer@Carroll aims to:
- Give each child what they most need, attending to areas of academic, social, emotional, identity, and cognitive development.
- Strengthen skills, deepen understanding, and minimize regression in academic areas such as reading, spelling, writing, and math.
- Connect children who have language-based learning differences with a community of peers who also learn differently.
- Build a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community that values, supports, and celebrates all facets of identity for our students, families, and staff.
- Engage staff, students, and families in practices which maintain the health and safety of our community.

Summer at CarRoll Parent Review
"Our daughter attended Summer@Carroll as a Beginning Reader during the summer after her kindergarten year and before first grade. We had identified issues with letter recognition, and she was already beginning to get frustrated with school and seemed to give up easily. We wanted to change this trajectory before she decided that she 'wasn’t good at' school, by finding a setting where she could learn in a way that was more tailored to her needs and therefore could gain confidence. Summer@Carroll was exactly this setting for her.
We were amazed at what they were able to accomplish in six weeks. She did gain confidence and her attitude toward school changed. She loved it there and so she enjoyed going, even though she had 'do school work' during the summer. They also had a lot of fun! Her progress definitely carried over into 1st grade. Her standardized reading and math tests showed that she made progress over the summer, and most importantly, she felt much better about school. Her teacher says that when the class is sounding out words together, our daughter is often the first one to raise her hand to volunteer. She is making real progress in reading and spelling words, and that is causing her confidence and interest in school to grow as well. We feel very grateful that she had the opportunity to participate in the Summer@Carroll program, and do feel like it made an important change in her path as a student."
