Reading University

What is Reading University

Reading University (RU) is a remarkable and exciting program designed to help Grade 3 students who are almost at grade level but need a little more literacy practice to improve their reading and writing skills.  Students are bussed to and from their home, provided with snacks, lunch, and all the supplies needed to succeed.  On top of that, there are field trips and excursions all over town!

This program is 100% community funded, meaning no cost to families, while  allowing the RU staff to maintain a ratio of one educator for every 5 students throughout the 3 week experience.  Students are engaged in learning using a wide variety of interactive learning strategies throughout the RU experience.  It is an awesome way to kick off the summer!


"Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss." Nora Ephron - 1941-2012
