Summer Climb-Preventing Summer Slide

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATES

Summer camps, classes and programs are OPEN for registration. As we monitor changes in the guidelines provided by local, state and national officials, as well as the CDC, we are moving forward with all Summer Program
Registration. We will offer refunds for cancellations resulting from COVID-19 public policies and maximum refunds, less 4% processing fees, for other cancellations. We are putting numerous safety measures in place so that students will remain in small groups without mixing with others during the camp day. Our camps will follow the 9:1 recommended CDC ratio. We will not be allowing any parents in the building and have created guidelines for drop off, pick up and keeping campers separated within our 8400 square foot facility. We have several entrances to help with this. A complete list of Summer Guidelines will be sent to each registered family in late May. We will continue to monitor this virus and recommendations from officials. Please reach out via phone at 772-341-1400 or email at allaboutachieving@yahoo.com if you have questions. Be safe and well!

The purpose of this program is to prevent Summer Slide. "The phenomenon was studied extensively by Johns Hopkins University researchers Karl Alexander, Doris Entwisle, and Linda Olson (2007), whose longitudinal study tracked Baltimore students from 1st grade through age 22 and found that 80% of the achievement gap between age 1 and 22 can be attributed to summer months. More recent findings have reached equally alarming conclusions. In a comprehensive analysis published by the RAND Corporation, McCombs and colleagues (2011) note that elementary students' performance falls by about a month during the summer. The Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, a collaborative effort among dozens of foundations, lists summer learning loss as one of the three major obstacles to reading proficiency at the end of 3rd grade (Gewertz, 2011)."

Many families vacation during the summer. As a result, missed activities and lessons can be provided at parent request but classes cannot be prorated due to high demand. These classes do fill up quickly and class sizes are very limited to ensure program fidelity. Registration will close online. There are no sibling discounts. If registration is closed, please contact the office at 341-1400 to be placed on a waiting list.
