Summer Program

The Achievement Gap

Across demographics, students typically advance their learning at similar rates throughout the school year. During the summer, however, their learning slows. This effect is particularly strong for at-risk students, who often times see a retreat in learning over the summer. Although equal in June, there could be a two or three month difference between two students’ learning by September. This effect is called the “achievement gap”.


Our Program

Serviam's academic year begins with a four week, mandatory Summer Program, during which academic instruction is interwoven with hands-on, project-based activities. Students are provided opportunities such as Soils camp, cross fit, and dance, that helps provide context to, and enrich, their academic experience, and prepare them for the year.
