    Why the Summer Academies?

    The bell rings, school is out, and eager students anticipate the next two months of summer.  While having no schoolwork is enticing during these months, there is a downside, the well-documented learning loss that occurs when children are not engaged in educational activities for long periods of time. “Summer Learning Loss” or “Summer Slide”, as it is termed, is not inevitable.  By taking part in special activities, kids can have a fun and educational summer. The Summer Academies is committed to providing your child with the skills to combat this phenomenon through a flexible and reasonably priced program. Our goal is to ensure that every child is well equipped for the academic rigors of the next school year.
