. . . a caring school prep summer camp for 4 to 6 year olds
Mt. Helix Academy conducts a very special summer camp designed to prepare 4 to 6-year old children for success in Trans-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, or 1st grade. We call it Get Ready. Three sessions of three weeks are held each summer.
Youngsters really grow in just a few weeks
Get Ready has been our school starter program for over fifteen years and our experience is that parents are really pleased with their child’s gains, whether they have chosen to enroll their child in Mt. Helix Academy or another school. Either way, Get Ready is a good way to find out about our high-performing school where students truly love to learn.
