The Extended School Year (ESY) program keeps students on the road to success and prevents academic and social regression that sometimes comes with taking too long a break from the classroom. If your child is challenged by communication, social skills, mood regulation, or learning disabilities, then the Extended School Year Program at The Calais School may be the only program that will address their individual needs in a safe and nurturing environment.The summer program continues to follow each student’s IEP, providing academic as well as social and therapeutic activities.
The Calais School and its staff are committed to providing all students with the academic and behavioral skills to reach their fullest potential and become life-long learners and socially competent members of their communities.
The Extended School Year Program is designed to contribute to the broad educational achievement of our students.
The ESY program includes both the Pre-K to Elementary and Middle School to 12 Plus levels. It is staffed by fully certified teachers and counselors from the academic school year program.
Classes are taught by highly qualified teachers. Counselors, reading specialists, and learning disability teacher-consultants work with students daily. School service dogs are trained specifically to work with students with special needs.
