104 Days of Summer Vacation… How Will You Spend it?


The longest and shortest time of the entire year is rapidly approaching! I know students everywhere wish that summer vacation could go on forever, but those of us who are parents and/or educators know better. While our students have definitely earned a break this summer, it is not the time to sleep on academics. The term “summer slide” has been around for several years and those of us in the educational world see the devastating effect that it can have on a students trajectory in academics. Typically students lose up to 30% of what they learned throughout the school year…which comes out to three whole months of learning lost! Here at AJ we recommend making and finalizing summer academic plans sooner rather than later! Here are just some options that we are offering this summer with more on the way!

Are You A Rising Junior?
