What is the Winter Academy?
Taking place from December 18-20, 2023, the Winter Academy provides students with the opportunity to explore important enriching concepts and receive additional individualized academic instruction with the support of a teacher.
What can students expect?
The Winter Academy is scheduled like a regular school day, with breakfast, lunch and breaks. All students will receive a tailored experience based on their academic need at a school within their community.
Every effort will be made to assign students to their school of regular attendance and with their regular teacher/school support staff. If a student's school of regular attendance is not open, every effort will be made to ensure that they are assigned to a school within their immediate community.
What does instructional support and enrichment include?
All students will receive a mix of instructional support and enrichment.
For elementary students, instructional support includes small group or one-on-one sessions with a teacher focused on literacy and math. Enrichment includes outdoor activities, fitness, dance and more.
For middle school and high school students, instructional support includes guided opportunities to improve grades, course extensions, performance assessment support, assignment support and activities focused on college and career readiness. Enrichment includes workshops for Advanced Placement classes, science activities, media literacy classes, history lessons, STEAM workshops and more.
