The program helps your child return to school feeling CONFIDENT! They are sell-assured knowing that they have been learning and engaged throughout the vacation. This program benefits students who need extra help, as well as students who want to maintain their present skills.

The 8-week program starts at the end of June and lasts through the middle of August. Each session is 1-hour long, although the older students benefit from a 2-hour session. We meet 1-3 hours, depending on your child’s needs. We focus on reading, writing, math, in addition to the “Summer Homework Packets” required by many schools. It is important to keep your child’s “learning momentum” going over the vacation. You don’t want your child to lose skills over the summer!

Athletes and musicians see their performance suffer without practice, and the same is true of students. Don’t let the “summer slide” create an achievement gap your child will have to overcome in the new school year. Here are some statistics about summer learning loss:

All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. Research shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of summer vacation (Cooper, 1996).

On average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Studies reveal that the greatest areas of summer loss for all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, are in factual or procedural knowledge (Cooper, 1996).

This learning loss is cumulative, summer after summer. It has a tremendous impact on students’ success, including high school completion, post-secondary education and work force preparedness. This waste is preventable. According to the RAND report, good summer programs with individualized instruction, parental involvement and small classes can keep children from falling behind and reduce the achievement gap. The summer months are an excellent time for your child to fill in learning gaps or zoom ahead with individual instruction.
