Reading Skills Programs

In cooperation with the Institute for Reading Development, a reading skills program was offered this past summer to students 4 years old to 11th grade.  There were different programs based on age level, and classes were offered in Highland and Portage. The program promoted phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, study skills, and speed of reading. The classes met during the summer of 2015, so please check back for future programming options.  For more information, please call 1-800-978-9596 or visit the website.
