Summer Classes: 4th & 5th Grade Students
In Summer 2009, ATS inaugurated a new program for students in 4th and 5th grades. Students can gain their first experience in an ATS-style class as they discover new approaches to traditional topics and explore enrichment opportunities in new subject areas.
Classes are scheduled in one-week sessions for a total of 12.5 hours for the week. Morning and afternoon classes are available.2014 Summer Session Dates: 4/5 Program

ATS is a nonprofit, self-supporting program which receives no federal or state funding. Course fees for the 2013 4/5 Program were $328 per class. Financial aid is available.
ATS provides supervision during class time only. ATS staff do not escort students to and from class.
Parents will be required to sign a Policy Agreement form to indicate their choice between 1) an authorized adult signing their student in and out of class each day, or 2) allowing their student to leave class without adult accompaniment and verifying the student is mature enough to be on campus independently without supervision. More information will be included in students' admission packets.
