Summer School & Academic Enrichment Programs

Newtown Continuing Education offers Summer Academic Enrichment programs for students exiting Kindergarten through 6th grades, who are recommended to receive additional support in Math and Language Arts (Reading/Writing). There are several programs to choose from.

A Middle School academic enrichment program, which provides additional support in Math, Language Arts and executive functioning skills is provided for students exiting 7th through 8th grades. Students attending this half-day program are also provided with enrichment opportunities to enhance their leisure opportunties. 

At the High School level, we offer High School students the opportunity to earn a PE 2 credit or a Personal Finance credit during the summer; so that students can focus on other core subjects during their traditional school year (offered to incoming Juniors and Seniors only). Credit recovery in English and Math are also offered for students meeting certain grade and attendance criteria.
