The summer session will heavily emphasize outdoors activities, and weather permitting, children will spend about half the day outside exploring biology, biking, fishing, and the school’s outdoor garden.
Students will have individualized instruction in the technology lab for 1-2 hours per week. The technology lab has a dozen computers that are loaded with 3D modeling software, programming environments, and educational games. A 3D printer is available for students to use to bring their ideas to life at no additional cost (print complexity and materials are limited).
Summer session will be led by the Montessori certified elementary instructor who leads our regular school year elementary program. This is an excellent opportunity to test drive our elementary program for new parents, and existing children benefit from the continuity provided by having the same instructor year round.
A different field trip is planned for each week of the summer session, and the students will visit the nearby Anoka Aquatic Center on a weekly basis as weather permits. You don’t have to make the difficult decision between academic progress, experiential learning, and just having fun because this program has all three! Some field trip examples include:
Additional staff will be on hand for water park visits and field trips in order to maintain a safe adult to child ratio. Field trips are included in the summer session cost, but parents must pay the cost of an unlimited admission wrist band for their child. Alternate child care will be available for children who cannot swim or otherwise attend water park visits.
Class runs from 8:30AM to 4:00PM Monday through Friday. Children can be dropped off no earlier than 8:00AM and must be picked up no later than 5:00PM. Earlier start times and later pick up times are available from the Montessori Renaissance Academy daycare program at additional cost.
Summer session will consist of 10 total weeks, parents can pick and choose which weeks they want their child to attend. There is no summer session the first week of summer (June 11-15), the last week of summer (August 27-31), and 4th of July week (July 2-6th).
The cost for summer session is a flat $200 per week, per child. Field trip costs are included in the flat rate. Anoka Aquatic Center season pass is required ($45).
If you would like to pay for all 10 weeks up front, you will receive one week free for a total summer session cost of $1800.
To reserve a spot without paying all 10 weeks up front you must make a $50 deposit per week. The deposit is not refundable after May 1st. The deposit will be used towards the normal cost of summer session.
