Due to COVID-19, we are unable to host a 2020 Summer Academy in Liberty City program for families in-person. Our clinic is fully operational and we continue to conduct individual and group services through telehealth.

Summer Academy in Liberty City is a comprehensive school readiness program adapted from the Summer Treatment Program for Pre-Kindergarteners.

FIU Summer Academy is funded by The Children's Trust and operates in Liberty City at Thena Crowder Early Childhood Diagnostic and Special Education Center.

Each summer, the Summer Academy serves 45 pre-kindergartners (5-years-old by September 1). Children participate in various recreational and classroom activities within a seven-week therapeutic summer day camp setting.

The program helps children to:

  • Surpass moderate to severe learning and behavioral needs
  • Overcome academic shortfalls, underachievement and failure
  • Learn school readiness skills
  • Positively transition and succeed in kindergarten and beyond

Parental involvement is encouraged through weekly parent meetings where parents develop the skills needed to prepare their child for kindergarten, to change their behavior at home and school, and to assist in their progress in camp.

Read more about the program in The Miami Herald.
