Summer Skills for Success

In consideration of the health and safety of the community, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our summer 2020 programs.
We look forward to offering programs in the future and hope you will check back with us in 2021.

MKA’s Summer Skills for Success program offers courses in reading, writing, World Languages, and mathematics for students entering grades 5 – 10 looking for advanced credit, enrichment and skill development in those areas. Students meet in small groups taught by outstanding faculty in air-conditioned classrooms at MKA’s Middle School campus.

Classes in algebra (I and II), geometry and pre-algebra meet from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. for six weeks from June 22 to July 31, for a total of 120 hours and are the equivalent of attending a full-year course at MKA’s Upper School or Middle School.

Enrichment and skill development courses in reading, writing, and math meet from 8:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in three, two-week sessions from June 22 to July 31, for a total of 40 hours and are the equivalent of attending a quarter-long course at MKA’s Middle School. Please note: classes will not meet on Friday, July 3. Students must attend two courses from 8:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m., so parents need to choose two of the options from the enrichment and skill development courses. Single course sign up is not available.


English courses are taught for three, two-week sessions.

Grades 5-6 (Session I only) and Grades 7-8 (Session II only)


Mathematics courses are taught for three, two-week sessions.

Mathematics Courses for Credit:

The following mathematics courses are for credit and taught from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and run all six weeks.

Please note that students who take classes taught for credit must fulfill the 120-hour course requirement. Students who wish to earn credit in these courses must complete the course work in the allotted hours. It is the responsibility of parents or students who wish to miss class time for non-medical reasons to contact their school districts to determine if they may miss class time, as MKA notifies all receiving schools of the number of hours completed in addition to the grade earned in the course. MKA assumes no responsibility for students who do not fulfill individual school or district attendance policies.
