Riverview’s Summer Program for Middle/High School students is designed to build students’ individual skills while maintaining academic progress achieved during the school year. Through the combination of academic and residential programming, Riverview’s goal is to develop responsible, independent, community-oriented students.
Academic instruction is provided each weekday morning using a thematic, integrated curriculum. Reading, writing and the arts are connected to a central theme, which provides a meaningful, multi-sensory learning environment. Students also receive instruction in mathematics and participate in elective classes to explore new interests.
Activities and Outings
In addition, Riverview Summer is about adventures and having fun! Activities are designed to strengthen cooperative skills and individual growth. Students experience summer on Cape Cod by attending professional sporting events, dances, whale watching, beach outings, water parks, kayaking, deep sea fishing and cultural events, such as concerts and plays – typical teenage experiences! Outings allow for skills learned in the classroom to be practiced in public settings.
Summer Day Students
Day students participate in the summer program from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., five days a week. Designed to mirror the weekday morning and afternoon portion of the School’s boarding program, the day program adheres to the same high standards as the programming available to our boarding students. Parents and/or school districts are responsible for all transportation to and from the day program.
