ASV Tech Camp

Families whose kids love technology and robotics may choose an alternative pathway to the general ASV Summer Program: the ASV Tech Camp. Addressed to students in Grades 4-5, teachers follow a lesson plan focused on educational robotics, programming, and multimedia. Every day the students are creating:  it can be either a stop-motion short movie or a vehicle that will later fight in a “robotic sumo” combat. The day also includes time for sports and sessions in the pool and the classes enjoy with classmates of the same age the scheduled excursions.

The ASV Teens Experience

The ASV Summer Program for Secondary Classes

Three of our summer classes are integrated into the Teens section, where the ASV Summer Program offers a experience tailored to the interests and needs of teenagers.  These groups usually have students who attended the Summer Program when they were in Elementary School  as well as news boys and girls aiming to increase their level of English as a second language..

The day combines English classes, time for games and sports and all the special activities and excursions. “In theEnglish lessons, we want the kids to strengthen their grammar and vocabulary but we also want them to gain confidence to use the language in a variety of contexts”, Mr. George describes. These objectives are achieved through small group work, vocabulary games and frequent invitation to communicate with each other.

Mr. Oran, teaching a mix of 6th and 7th graders, pays special attention to collaboration and teamwork. At the beginning of the month, he encouraged students to team up and design mobile apps: “Each project had to meet one condition: solve a problem or a need of disabled users”, this teacher says.

Mr. Mike’s class, has spent much of their time doing online research related to science topics and basic lab work.

Welcome to the 2022 ASV Summer Program!

American School of Valencia has opened the 2022 edition of the Summer Program. We are excited to welcome our students and we hope they feel as comfortable as our teachers and the staff are in this first day on campus.

First Activities

Activities in this first day aim to facilitate a pleasant and easy transition: today’s goal was to let students meet their teacher and classmates in a friendly environment, make them familiar with the facilities, and offer a first sight of the daily routine and the PBIS expectations taken from the school culture.

Kinder and Elementary classes had group games and special art and crafts. Books and other individual materials were also distributed. In PreKinder 1 and 2, students have time to explore and play.  In many classes, the schedule after the morning break included the swimming time and outdoor games in our athletic facilities.

“This has been a very positive day”, assistant coordinator Mr. Matías Benlloch says. “All of our teachers reported that in general, all of the students seem comfortable and happy. Those who participated in the 2021 edition asked about their former teachers but also are a reference for others who are new,” he describes.
