Did you know that kids typically fall 2-3 months behind in reading and math levels over the summer?

The proof is in the testing—on standardized tests, students scored lower results at the end of the summer compared to during the school year. Furthermore, researchers have determined that without the integration of some sort of summer academic program, by grade 9, students can fall a whole academic year behind. 

We can help students ignite their academic brains & be ready for the next school year!
