The Serviam School Year

Innovative education demands creative approaches to engage the learner. A Serviam education is characterized by a full, 10 hour day, from breakfast through core classes, to daily physical education class, to clubs and team sports/athletics; students are inspired to learn. A full, 10+ month year, which includes a mandatory four week Summer Program in July, helps facilitate community and bridge potential learning gaps that often occur over a three month-long summer vacation.

July

Summer

Serviam's academic year begins with a four week, mandatory Summer Program, during which academic instruction is interwoven with hands-on, project-based activities. Students are provided various opportunities that helps provide context to, and enrich, their academic experience, and prepare them for the year. The goal of our summer program is to build culture; foster community; reinforce skill development and the love of learning.

Last summer, SGA’s traditional four week summer program partnered with the YMCA and the New Castle Charter School under a fully funded Federal Grant to provide our students a multi level experience. 

 Students started their day at the Rt. 9 Library and Innovation Center with academic programming focusing on literacy, Project Based Learning and STEM

The students were then bussed to a YMCA of the families choice for enrichment programming focusing on athletics, arts, etc.

The program ran from 8:30 am - 3:30 pm with breakfast and lunch provided and a free option to extend the kids time at their chosen YMCA.
