The Loyola Clinical Centers (LCC) is offering the Literacy Scholars Program, a summer reading program to help children’s literacy and language arts skills, at the Loyola-Notre Dame Library from June 27 through July 27, 2018.

The Literacy Scholars Program is available Monday through Friday at no cost. The program is open to children entering grades 3-12 and will be taught by graduate students in Loyola’s reading specialist master’s program.

“Literacy is important for academic success,” said Rebecca Zukowski, Ph.D., executive director of the Loyola Clinical Centers. “The Literacy Scholars Program focuses on recognition skills, reading and writing fluency, vocabulary development, and comprehension to ensure children have key tools to thrive and have a love for learning. The program is a unique opportunity for children to receive high quality, evidence-based instruction by Loyola’s outstanding graduate students at no cost.”

One-hour individual and small group tutoring is available. Spaces are filling quickly. For more information, go to loyola.edu/clinical-centers, call 410-617-1200, or email theclinics@loyola.edu.
