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.


How Does it Work?

The Summer Academies is a morning enrichment program designed for children entering Kindergarten through 8th grade. Classes should be selected based on your child's grade in September 2019.

Starting July 8th, classes will be offered in 2-week sessions, Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 12:15. Children do not have to be registered for all four classes to attend; however, multiple classes must be consecutive.
