Literacy

We emphasize the fundamental importance of reading and writing, both for school success and in order to enrich the boys’ daily lives. The literacy component of our program teaches decoding skills and comprehension strategies to improve reading and develops writing skills through many engaging individual and small group activities. The curricula is drawn to state and national standards.

Eagle’s Nest boys don’t just learn to comprehend literature, they learn to analyze and enjoy it. We select age-appropriate, boy-friendly materials, such as adventure stories, and include biblical, character-building content as well. Our desire is that each boy becomes comfortable using and understanding language arts at all levels, ultimately improving not only his reading and writing, but his overall communication skills.
