Summer is a time when children get to relax and enjoy playing outside, embracing freedom. It’s also a time when your child may experience academic regression, hindering their academic growth upon returning to school. Over the summer, students lose the equivalent of one month of academic learning with an average of 27% loss in math and 20% loss in reading.
To prevent summer slide or to close gaps in your child’s learning, consider taking a course or two to keep their mind fresh. And if your child is bored after being home for several weeks, this is a great opportunity to engage them in learning. For those with teenagers, ILA is excited to offer various online courses that allow them to explore something new, dive deeper into their interests, or even “try on” a career!
