Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program

With the success of last year’s summer learning loss prevention program the Y is proud to announce it will be bringing back the program again!
Make no mistake this is not a tutoring program, this is an opportunity to have your child succeed and excel; where the otherwise average student would lose up to half of a grade level over the summer.

Addressing the rising concern of summer learning loss, often referred to as the “Summer Slide.”
We utilize the latest technology: Tackling Math and English with the ADAM & DORA EDGE educational software authored by Let’s Go Learn, Inc.
Fueling young minds:
Providing a nutritious meal every day for students of the program, because learning and nutrition are directly linked.
