Summer Study at Riverdale

June–July 2019

Summer Study at Riverdale will be returning in 2019 with new day-long programs for students in grades 5–12. In addition to math and English courses, Riverdale faculty will offer interdisciplinary classes in the sciences and language arts. Students will enjoy small class sizes and individualized instruction at our spacious, park-like River campus.

Complete program descriptions and application information will be available on January 31, 2019. For additional information and to answer your questions contact program director, Georgia Tucker at gtucker@riverdale.edu.

Learning How to Learn

“Learning how to learn” is a set of skills and understandings that are essential not only for academic success but also for personal and professional growth and well-being beyond schooling.

Leading your own learning involves understanding how to stay focused and on task, knowing how your brain works in terms of making and retrieving memories, and how to study and be involved in the classroom in productive and effective ways. We all have room to improve in these skills.

Instruction at Summer Study at Riverdale will embed lessons on metacognition and learning strategies so students improve on transferable skills that will benefit them far beyond one academic discipline.
