Summer Learning Loss

Research spanning 100 years has proven that students lose ground academically when they are out of school for the summer.

Everyone can help schools and organizations address summer learning loss by supporting strong programs that engage children in summer learning opportunities. Summer learning's new form of blended academic, hands-on activities combined with arts, sports, technology and building relationships gives student's the gains they need to not lose ground academically during the summer months.

By the end of 5th Grade, disadvantaged children are nearly three grade equivalents behind their more affluent peers in reading.
