When you send your child to Summer School at Kells, we evaluate your child's report cards and their skills to create a personalized, small-group learning experience. We work with your child to strengthen skills and build understanding in key academic areas. Our teachers differentiate lessons to meet your child's needs, using multimedia, hands-on technology including Smartboards.

You can be confident that your child will benefit from our teachers' expertise and understanding for students with different learning needs. At Kells, we make sure that students receive the accommodations they need, whether it's in the classroom or during exams. We use assistive technology and online services, and our teachers work to build student independence by incorporating study skills into the program.
We know that self-confidence and learning go hand-in-hand.

Summer success starts at Kells.

ELL Camp

Kells Academy Language Adventure Summer Camp:

Courses are designed to provide an opportunity for concentrated instruction to students interested in gaining proficiency in English.

The emphasis is placed on an improvement in spoken English but appropriate supplementary study is given in writing, reading and comprehension skills.

The classes are small enough to provide more individual attention and yet the groups are large enough to maintain a positive class spirit.
