Sing, play, and dance through history going from the Middle Ages all the way to Broadway. Participants will work with their voices, rhythmic instruments, and dance moves. Listening to and playing music during this week strengthens listening skills, vocal pitch, music literacy, coordination, and balance, too. The week culminates with a performance in front of a young audience and all parents are welcome to attend. Your child will come away with a new love for melody and harmony and conduct themselves with greater focus and ability in many areas all while having fun!

The SAT Reading and Writing test takes a comprehensive approach to gauging a student's facility with written language. Questions require multiple steps to find an answer, and reading passages have complex structure and vocabulary. The essay portion of the test is optional, but colleges may still require it. In this class, students will practice reading, analyzing, and editing long passages. Students will also practice using evidence from the passages to answer questions. In addition, this class will familiarize students with test taking strategies that will help them perform their best on test day. The course is designed for students who have completed grades 9-11, and class time is divided between classroom teaching, writing, and timed practice assessments similar to the SAT test. A test prep booklet will be provided by Rockbridge Academy.
