National Summer School Initiative for AFCHES 3rd & 4th Grade Scholars

We know that this summer, with camps and activities likely closed, many families are wondering how their scholars will stay active and engaged. We also know that many families want to make sure that their scholars’ academic progress isn’t disrupted by school closures. Because of this, Achievement First has partnered with other school districts around the country to participate in the National Summer School Initiative.

The National Summer School Initiative is a remote summer school that focuses on exciting and engaging content for students. All lessons will be taught by Achievement First teachers. Lessons will focus on math problem-solving and ELA close reading, and students will have morning meeting or advisory along with classes in movement and enrichment (curated science, history, and arts content). The National Summer School Initiative is open to all students currently in grades 3 – 8 (rising 4th to 9th graders) who want to spend the summer growing their brains!

• The program runs for five weeks, from June 29 – July 31st
• Scholars will have class from approximately 10:00am – 2:30pm
• Scholars will have approximately 60 minutes of homework a day

This program is not specifically designed to be remedial, though it IS designed to effectively serve a wide range of students … from those struggling in ELA and math to those scoring advanced on state assessments.

Right now, we can’t 100% guarantee your child will have a spot, but we are going to work really, really hard to accommodate any scholar who wants to attend. The deadline to apply is 6/10.
