Summer Reading Skills Programs

In partnership with the Institute of Reading Development, Saint Louis University offers summer reading programs for children and adults in summer. 

This summer, help your child become a confident, enthusiastic reader in the Summer Reading Skills Programs, offered through SLU and designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.

Strengthen Skills, Build Confidence, Enjoy Reading

These programs teach key reading skills for every grade, from phonics and sight words for younger children, to comprehension, textbook strategies and writing skills for older kids, and everything in between.

Guided by a knowledgeable and supportive teacher, students in these programs experience reading success again and again, developing their skills and building confidence in outstanding books at the right level of challenge for each age.

Your child will avoid the many challenges of summer learning loss and become an avid reader who enjoys reading for school and pleasure. 

How the Programs Work

Your child will attend weekly live online classes that build skills and provide great experiences with terrific books — books filled with interesting characters, exciting storylines, and engaging themes. Your child will practice reading and complete fun interactive lessons that develop core skills and build confidence between classes.

An Institute of Reading Development teacher will provide all the support and instruction your child needs to grow as a reader and student. Your child will get a jumpstart on the next school year and be ready to make it a big success.
