Summer Enrichment

Covington Latin School offers enrichment programs in Pre-Algebra and Language Arts for interested students. 

The courses are designed for 5th, 6th and 7th grade students who have successfully earned admission to Latin School, but whom also may be well-served by some additional subject preparation. Students are welcome to take both courses and will receive a performance evaluation, sent within two weeks of the final session.

Beyond preparation in a given subject, families have also found value in the courses as a general preparation for Latin School – a strong emphasis on study skills , familiarization with the workload (and the campus) and a unique opportunity for incoming students to meet future classmates in advance of orientation.

The cost for each course is $150 which includes the use of our textbooks. Language Arts students must purchase George Orwell’s Animal Farm, which we ask that students not read prior to the start of class.

Although no grade or credit is given for these courses, they do require a serious commitment on the part of each student. In order to get the most out of the courses, students should endeavor to attend all sessions and maintain a relatively free schedule in the evenings to accommodate the anticipated workload. A total of 21 classroom hours should be complemented with an equal amount of work outside the classroom. 

Summer Enrichment coursework has been taught since 2002 by our Dean of Studies, Stephanie Tewes. Please feel free to direct enrichment-related questions (including questions about potential scheduling conflicts) to Ms. Tewes

To register, please submit the completed registration form and a $150.00 check payable to Covington Latin School. Information and payment should be directed to the Main Office and must be received 30 days prior to the start date to ensure seat availability. 

Ms. Tewes offers additional information on summer enrichment coursework on her teacher website.
