Welcome to Summer Camp at The Academy of 21st Century Learning!
I know you’re thinking, “But it’s only spring!” I’m a mom, too, and I know how fast summer can creep up on all of us. It’s never too early to start planning for summer learning activities. We talk a lot about what our kids are learning in school, but did you know we also know a lot about what happens when they’re not in school during the summer vacation?
Here are some facts:
- Most students lose about two months of what they learned in math over the summer months.
- Low-income students lose more than two months in reading achievement.
- Parents consistently say that summer is the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do.
- Our children’s’ need to learn does not end in May when the school doors close. They need to stay active and engaged, which also helps them stay on track academically when they return to school in August.
The Academy to the rescue!
Yes, it’s time to plan ahead and secure a spot for your child in a program that will support growth and learning during the summer months. Don’t worry, you don’t have to tell the kids they are avoiding summer learning-loss. If they are having fun with engaging, well-run pro-grams, trust me, they will be learning. Please take some time to read through our Summer Schedule, make your choices, and return the registration form with payment. Many of our classes fill up quickly!
The Specialty Classes are taught by credentialed teachers or University graduating student-teachers. Small groups and classes keep your child focused and challenged. There will be days when The Academy is transformed into Mars, a rain forest, or an ocean scene.
I look forward to seeing you and your children this summer!
