Math skills are essential in almost any course of study. Even a liberal arts education at the college level will require some knowledge of statistics or accounting. If your child needs to brush up on their skills, consider Salisbury Summer School. As a summer school in Connecticut’s Litchfield County we offer comprehensive programming for students entering grades 7-12, including math review.
Mathematics Review is an elective offered as an alternative to Creative Writing for students who wish to develop their math skills. Upon completion of course requirements in our credit option, students may receive a partial make-up credit in Algebra 1, Geometry or Algebra 2 (see below).

Individualized Math Sections
Individual math sections are based on student's previous math studies and the results of a placement test taken in the first days of the program. They are not designed to complete a whole year's course work, but are individualized to the student's needs.
All courses focus on:
• Developing math reasoning skills
• The student's abilities and interests in math
• Review of basic math skills and concepts
Students focus on basic mathematical concepts such as fractions, decimals, percents and word problems.
Students review fractions, linear algebraic equations, exponents, and the rules of algebraic simplification.
This class focuses on quadratic equations, rational expressions, geometry review and SAT preparation.
Salisbury Summer School offers a math-for make-up credit program. For more information contact admissions.
