Summer Camps

This summer has been full of projects, new hobbies, good books, sports, and loads of fun. With just a short time left before school opens on August 28, we hope you've had a wonderful summer and that the children enjoyed this year's camps. We'll see you soon.
Summer Library
Come in out of the summer heat into the coolest library around! Are you a James River student who wants to check out a book or needs to take an AR quiz? Working on those summer reading lists?

One of the most popular programs at James River Day School is back – and now better than ever! The nostalgic one-room schoolhouse, which offered students a unique and specialized education, has disappeared from our fast-paced culture. James River has successfully brought back the concept of the one-room schoolhouse to ease the transition into the next school year. We will offer specialized instruction in math, grammar, and Spanish or French. This program furnishes students with a jump-start by providing them with individualized lessons and differentiated instruction in the school’s core curriculum areas, plus organizational assistance for students who need a little help getting it all together. Students will transition smoothly into a new school year at James River Day School by getting set up and ready to go ahead of time!

Ages: rising 1st through  rising 8th graders (James River students only)
