Summer Slide

We’ve all heard the statistics: students may experience up to 2 months of learning loss during the summer months. There are many summer learning options, but many of them are costly and not affordable for all students.

Using ACT Academy, which is completely free, students can stay sharp throughout the summer and have a strong start when they head back to school in the fall!
