The Fairfax Christian School will also host the Summer English Institute, a three week intensive English program where ESL students can build their English skills and earn academic credit. International students excel in our intensive summer English classes, which are designed to quickly increase students’ English skills. Classes meet from 9:00am – 3:00pm, Monday through Friday, August 6 – 24. The program is offered for middle and high school students ages 9 and up. Students begin with comprehensive placement tests. Test results are then used to place each student in the appropriate levels for phonics, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, speech and TOEFL preparation. Students work in small groups with personal attention from the Fairfax Christian School’s teachers. Students also attend weekly educational field trips to popular sites in the Washington, D.C., area.
