Welcome to The Southport School's Summer Programs

We are excited to announce our 2021 Summer Programs for students entering grades 1-9 that focus on skill-building and learning strategies. We understand the importance of adaptability, flexibility, and creativity in how we approach all of our work. Our mission is to embrace those with learning differences for their strength and potential and offer the most transformative educational experience possible, regardless of the circumstances or environment.

The entire 2021 Southport School Summer Program will be in-person and on-campus with our expert teaching staff who are all trained in research-based approaches like Orton-Gillingham and Executive Function Coaching. As in previous years, we are opening our doors to children in the greater community and we hope your child or someone you know might benefit from our summer programs.

We are confident and excited to host our in-person summer program. We will continue to do what has made us successful this school year by strictly adhering to the 3W’s -- Wear your mask, Wash your hands, and Watch your distance. We will have a daily morning health check with a COVID-19 digital waiver and touchless, socially distant temperature reading stations. We have 6’ markers throughout the campus and buildings. Our COVID signage is orange - bright enough to remind every one of these mandates. The class sizes continue to be small with a limited number of students in a room and with appropriate spacing between desks with plexiglass barriers.

The Concentrated Skills Sharpener program will be a multi-week program from July 1-July 30 for students entering 1st-6th grade. We will also offer two sessions of two-week workshops for students entering 6th-9th grades July 6-16 and July 19-30. All programs run in the mornings and are on-campus and in-person. This is not a “remote or virtual” program by choice or option. We expect full attendance in person on our campus.
