Arizona's Oak Creek Ranch School Now Accepting Applications for Summer School 2010

Co-Ed Boarding School's Summer Program Offers ADHD Teens Opportunity to Earn Credits

WEST SEDONA, AZ--(Marketwire - March 9, 2010) - Summer is just around the corner, and Oak Creek Ranch School (OCRS) is now accepting applications for its summer boarding school program.

OCRS is a private, fully accredited school near Sedona. Founded in 1972, the co-ed Arizona boarding school specializes in helping ADD/ADHD, under-motivated and underachieving teens ages 12 to 18 succeed through a mix of traditional and experiential academic and extracurricular programs. The school offers year-round open enrollment. 

OCRS's summer program includes options of four-, six- and eight-week sessions from June to August. The program is designed to help teens develop new study habits and organizational skills, earn credits toward graduation, become motivated and build self-esteem. Students earn one semester's worth of credits in two subject areas during a four-week period. Middle-school students work on reading, writing, math and science skills that prepare them for the next grade level. Classes in core subjects -- English, Spanish, math, science and social studies -- are available to students ages 12 to 18, grades 7 through 12. All credits are transferrable, and students may enroll for personal enrichment.

"Because the OCRS curriculum is customized for ADD/ADHD, under-motivated and underachieving teens, the kids experience a new approach to coursework -- one that works for them and puts them on the path to success," said Headmaster David Wick, Jr. "At the end of every summer I hear from parents who are excited about their children's academic progress and increased self-confidence."

Students in the summer program attend classes for six hours each day. During the afternoons and evenings, they enjoy structured activities such as horseback riding, intramural sports, golf and more. On weekends, students may take part in fun off-campus outings, including hiking and trips to the Grand Canyon. While in the classroom and on campus, teens also improve their social and leadership skills while learning to be responsible members of the community.

"Many parents who are considering Oak Creek Ranch School for the fall choose to introduce their children to the boarding school experience with our summer program. It is relatively inexpensive, and lets students become acclimated to a new learning environment," Wick said. "Meanwhile, thanks to all the activities outside of the classroom, kids also have a lot of fun!"

Applications for the summer program are now being accepted. Tuition for a four-week session is $4,150, which is inclusive of classes, room and board, textbooks and school supplies. Financing is also available. To learn more, visit www.ocrs.com or contact David Wick, Jr. at 877-554-OCRS (6277).
