BENEFITS OF SUMMER ENRICHMENT
A Taste of Things to Come
A summer program is a great way to get your middle school child ready for the challenges of high school. The transition from middle to high school is often daunting, and there is a distinct change in pace. Sometimes, students experience the “summer slide,” when young minds become relatively idle during the three-month break, and can lead to a substantial drop in learning levels. Summer learning loss accounts for about 2/3 of the 9th grade achievement gap in reading. A summer program and enrichment tutoring will keep your child’s brain cells zinging, preventing a deterioration in learning.
Summer is also a great time for high school students to volunteer, intern, or get a paid job. It is recommended that students get involved in activities that are related to their college major or career path.

These activities can be done throughout the school year but the bulk of the hours during the summer. Students can volunteer, intern, and work at the same time as doing Summer Academic Enrichment.
