Berthold Academy distinguishes itself from other summer programs because it is not a theme-based camp.

We offer a full-day academic program with an engaged staff and mindfully designed curriculum that is personally tailored to your child’s learning needs and current academic ability, regardless of age or grade. Our summer program:

  • provides consistency and structure during “vacation” months

  • gives your elementary or middle school child a head start for Fall

  • supports deeper inquiry into concepts your child may not have mastered in the regular school year

  • offers a chance to experience a completely new environment that values your child's personal developmental process

Students receive daily lessons in math, language, and other key curricular areas, sometimes in a 1:2 ratio, other times in larger groups of approximately 1:10. The year-long continuity of study also eliminates the need for the "Fall Review" or summer tutors.

More details on our program and educational approach:

  • Daily math and language lessons in small groups, with personalized attention to your child's specific abilities.

  • Group activities in science, history, technology, and art with many opportunities for hands-on learning and outdoor activity in our large green space adjacent to the school.

  • A summer garden-to-table program, in which students are engaged in agricultural studies, gardening, cooking and eating what they grow. (Learn about our year-round program.)

  • An embedded personal development curriculum, including two mindfulness sessions per week, as well as personal goal-setting and review to support the growth of self-control, time management, and organizational skills. (Learn more about our year-round program.)

  • For new families: an opportunity to experience the Montessori approach to education during a short-term "trial period." (Learn more about our philosophy.)

  • For current and incoming Berthold Academy families: the consistency of a year-long, continuous educational routine so that your child’s learning and developmental progress continue seamlessly.
