Middle School Academic Summer Camp Courses
June 30-July 26, 2013
A wide variety of enrichment courses await you at R-MA's Middle School Summer Academic Camp in the Northern Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Explore a new language, explore technology, broaden your reading base, step back in time...it's a summer you'll never forget!
History in Action
Experience the history of Virginia and the presidency. Instruction and field work centers on the Virginia-born presidents this year, which includes an ample survey of United States history. A combination of interactive field trips and the use of the traditional classroom makes this course a must for history enthusiasts.
*Please note that History-in-Action and Science Explorer each run for two periods; students taking one of these classes can only choose one additional course.
Focus on basic operations and word problems with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. Small class instruction helps you master the fundamentals of middle school-level math.
If you have mastered the foundations of computational mathematics, this is for you. Learn about equations, the use of rational numbers, inequalities, and functions. You will also connect algebraic functions to geometry.
Want to improve your grades and test scores? This course can help! Discover the methodology of proper study habits, what works and what does not. You will practice organizational, note-taking, and reading skills. To enhance middle-level learning, proper research and writing skills are also practiced.
Please note that all courses are for enrichment only. This is an academic camp, not a summer school program. Students cannot take these courses to make up for courses failed during the normal academic year.
