Superintendent Hopson is making it possible for thousands of students to get an enriching and exciting academic experience this summer, all for FREE in a safe and fun school setting! In 2017, more than 6,200 elementary students attended the Superintendent’s Summer Learning Academy. This year, we’re expanding to serve over 10,000 students in ALL grades!
Students get a full day of stimulating literacy, math and STEM lessons, as well as music, arts, health and fun summer field trips. Our new “Kickoff to Kindergarten” program features hands-on learning to promote school readiness for rising Kindergarteners. Plus, we’re offering new specialized middle and high school programs, including robotics, music, visual arts, dance, creative writing, CSI and sports.
Summer Learning = Academic Growth for Students!
In addition to providing a safe, fun and enriching summer experience for students, the Summer Learning Academy was created to prevent students from losing ground over the summer – also commonly known as summer slide. Year 1 students showed increased proficiency in Reading and overall Literacy during fall testing, as well as up to four months of growth in Math!
