Important Insights

During summer months, many students lose more than two months in academic achievement. Over time, this “summer learning loss” adds up, and results in lower graduation rates.

As a set of research-based educational, enrichment and work experiences designed to stop summer learning loss, Summer Learning Academies combine fun academic enrichment endeavors, activities designed to foster success mindsets and behaviors, campus visits, and work experiences.

In Summer Learning Academies, students gain measurable weeks of learning by improving math skills, reading books, performing music, taking field trips, designing publications, and more.

Since 2010, Believe 2 Become Summer Learning Academies have provided innovative learning opportunities to thousands of young children and their families, serving over 6,900 local youth.
