Summer Programs

Pegasus Prep

AUGUST 19 – 23

Registration for 2019 Pegasus Prep is open.

The Lower School Prep Class Program is designed to provide Pegasus students a basis for success in the year ahead and to help accelerate mastery of academic and organizational skills. Reading adventures, writing explorations, ST Math, games, computation, and critical thinking skills are integrated into the curriculum.
The Middle School Prep Program includes Middle School Orientation Week, a fun-filled experience geared toward introducing students to Pegasus while helping continuing students brush up on crucial skills. Students will learn: how to master organizational and study skills such as note taking; to build good relationships with peers and teachers; to set up MacBooks; and to prioritize homework and long-term assignments. Prep students will receive their school supplies early, as well as their assigned lockers. They will meet new friends and reunite with returning peers. They will certainly have an insider advantage to start the Pegasus Middle School.
