Academic Enrichment and Excellence
The Kickstart program is an academic enrichment program designed to ease students’ transition into Menlo School.
The program runs for four weeks in the summer and provides an excellent introduction to Menlo’s academic and community expectations. Our goals include helping students preview and prepare for upcoming academic challenges by reinforcing foundational skills in writing and mathematical problem-solving. Kickstart also introduces students to the routines and expectations of a successful Menlo student and gives them a chance to get to know several of their classmates and teachers before school begins. Students interested in enrolling in Kickstart must meet specific program criteria. For more information, please contact Carmen Borbón, our Kickstart Program Coordinator.
