Summer Enrichment Program for Grades K-12 in Charleston now accepting applications

Registration is now underway to enroll students in grades K to 12 in Marshall University’s month-long summer enrichment program at Stonewall Jackson Middle School in Charleston, which will run June 16 through July 17.

The program is designed to provide children under 18 with activity-based learning experiences in writing, reading and math, with the theme “America the Beautiful,” according to Dr. Sandra Stroebel from Marshall’s school psychology program. She will be coordinating the summer event.

The program utilizes supervised graduate students in clinical experiences leading to certification or licensure in special education, school counseling and school psychology, Stroebel said.

Counseling and assessment services are also available, Stroebel said.  The program runs from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with breakfast and lunch provided for those under 18. Participants will be scheduled for an orientation session from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on either Wednesday, June 11, or Thursday, June 12.

The cost for each child is $100.  Some limited tuition assistance is available on a need basis. Since this is a full inclusion program, regular education and special education students are encouraged to apply.
