Our Summer Program operates for six hours a day (11:00 am-5:00 pm), four days a week (Monday – Thursday) for six-weeks in July and August. Summer instruction helps students build academic skills, retain the knowledge they gained during the school year, and cultivate creativity and critical thinking. Math content will provide 6-8th grade students in our Summer Learning Program with a targeted algebra readiness program during the summertime. We deploy various memory games that employ diverse learning styles and lead to retention. These games use techniques developed in “Cultivating the Genius of Black Children-Strategies to Close the Achievement Gap” (Redloaf, 2015).
