2024 Summer Reading Skills Programs

Programs Offered On Campus in Pensacola and Ft. Walton Beach

This summer, help your child become a confident, enthusiastic reader. Summer Reading Skills Programs are offered by the University of West Florida, Division of Continuing Education, and designed and taught by instructors from the Institute of Reading Development.

Strengthen Skills, Build Confidence, Enjoy Reading

These single-grade programs teach key reading skills, from phonics and sight words for younger children to comprehension, reading speed, and textbook strategies for older kids, and everything in between.

Guided by a knowledgeable and supportive teacher, students in these programs experience success with reading again and again, developing their skills and building confidence in outstanding books at the right level of challenge for each age.

How the Programs Work

Your child will attend weekly classes that build skills and provide great experiences with terrific books – books that are filled with interesting characters, exciting storylines, and engaging themes. Between classes, your child will practice reading and complete fun, interactive lessons that develop core skills and build confidence.  

An Institute of Reading Development teacher will provide all the support and instruction your child needs to grow as a reader and student. Your child will get a jumpstart on the next school year and be ready to make it a big success!
