Are you worried that your child is not in the top 5 students in their class?

Do they need extra help to be ready for a good middle school or high school experience?

How much fun time is best for kids in the summer? Can they use some of their 1,000 hours learning?


Summer Academics Gold is your best choice for your child to get to the top five in the Fall class, develop a love for learning, and mix in some great some summer fun.

  • Most students start the Fall school term trying to remember what happened in the year before. Some studies show that new learning starts for most students in November, just before Thanksgiving. Our Academic morning program prepares students for the next grade and keeps their skills sharp. Our students start the Fall at the head of the class while others are struggling to get started.
  • Summer Academics Gold is built from study sequences. These times (15-30 minutes depending on grade) push students to understand and practice a concept in that time. Between the sequences, we charge up their energy. A 30 minute sequence may be followed by a 5 minute dance routine in the class, a snack, or a game. We also mix in spirit rallies and fun customs and plenty of physical exercise on the playground. The laughter, running, and games improves energy for study and recharges energy after a tough project. Students find the combination irresistible.

    Students learn best when they want to learn. Our job is to keep them learning and engaged to get to the head of the class.

Program Description

Summer Academics Gold is an 8 week educational program during July and August, Each week and each grade has two learning modules – in math and English. Your child will complete every Friday with specific topics added to their skill set. These skills are directly related to the public school curriculum that they will work on in Fall 2019. Science, Technology, a college trip and daily moments of motivation keep the students engaged.

Summer is an exciting time at 82nd Street Academics. We have a summer of challenge and fun that helps students start next September at the head of the class! We build lessons with student curiosity, hands-on and project based themes.(We accept HRA Vouchers for all summer programs.)
