Lower School Summer Programs

Thank you for your interest in our Lower School Summer Programs.

Skill Builders and Socially Savvy are now FULL.

If you would like to be added to our waitlist, please email admissions@thejoyschool.org with your child's name, current school, and current grade level. 

Our students find the JOY in learning through direct, purposeful instruction in a safe, supportive environment with peers who share similar needs.

Students learn to celebrate their areas of strength while gaining skills and strategies to support their areas of weakness. They return to their schools with a renewed sense of confidence and a stronger understanding of themselves as learners.

Please register for a parent tour to find out more information about The Joy School and our program offerings during the regular school year.
