Holy Martyrs Ferrahian School provides a summer school experience filled with academic and enrichment classes for elementary and middle school students. Summer school classes may sound like a pretty raw deal. However, there are advantages to summer classes that you don’t find during the semester. Courses are short and sweet, the material is condensed into a short period of time, which may feel overwhelming, but it will be easier to take tests when everything is fresh in your mind. Nonetheless, summer courses can be rewarding and even fun.
Students at the elementary campus enjoy swimming, computers and art in the afternoon. The elementary computer curriculum provides students with the opportunity and the skills needed to make computers a relevant tool for their learning.
While the focus of our attention in these grades is on the academic program, we encourage the children to think critically and creatively. Thinking skills are promoted through exercises that require understanding, interpretation, application, and evaluation. The use of manipulatives and "hands on" approach to learning enable the children to acquire knowledge through their own experience, often by trial and error.
Ferrahian is a warm and friendly environment where a core commitment to academic excellence blends gracefully with equally strong traditions of pursuing excellence in character, an appreciation of well rounded young people who thrive on challenges and opportunities in all areas of life.
