Junior Academic Academy for Girls
Six one-week sessions
June 24–28 and July 8–August 9
for girls entering Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten
This camp, like all Stuart summer camps, is open to Stuart girls and non-Stuart girls alike.
9:00 AM–12:00 PM
Centered on play-based learning, the Stuart Academy morning session emphasizes routines and skill sets necessary to ensure a smooth transition towards full-day schooling in Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten. A focus on communication, community, and building friendships as well as an awareness of self-regulation skills are taught through routines and structures, hands-on learning, group instruction and center rotation.
Previous activities include published pieces (how-to book, all about my family book, and an animal research book) and real-life math experiences (JK-K grocery store and pattern shop). Give your daughter the opportunity to become familiar with her future classroom and instill in her a sense of confidence for the first day of school in September!
The afternoon session provides a fun, energy-filled afternoon summer experience instructed by expert Stuart faculty! Your child will experience unique hands-on indoor and outdoor learning experiences on our 55 acre campus that can’t be found anywhere else! Weekly themes and descriptions can be found below:
