Recognized by TIME Magazine and the White House Initiative United We Serve, Summer Advantage USA is impacting student and school district performance across the country. Summer Advantage raises educational achievement in its scholars by harnessing the power of summer learning. Focused on both academic and social development, the program offers five weeks of rigorous academic instruction in the morning and afternoon enrichment activities.
In 2012, Summit 54 sponsored bringing the nationally acclaimed Summer Advantage program to Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs, Colorado in partnership with Roaring Fork Schools.
Each year, Summit 54 and Roaring Fork Schools sponsor more than 600 “at-risk” students in the free five-week program. Our attendance record is always in the 95% range because the kids love the program and want to attend. This allows our scholars to learn every day for maximum academic growth.
In 2017, according to STAR Assessments given during the first and final weeks of the program, scholars gained 1-2 months in reading and 3-4 months in math during the short five-week program.
