Given the loss of instructional time due to COVID-19 related school closures, the summer of 2020 will be essential to help stave off typical summer learning loss experienced by students. In order to limit the summer learning loss, the Department of Catholic Schools created a free summer learning program for students entering 3rd through 8th grade.
The Summer Learning Program will provide academic instruction to incoming 3rd through 8th graders. There will be two courses taught (ELA and Math) in each grade level for a total of 24 courses. Each course will run for six weeks from July 6th to August 14th. Each week will focus on one topic that will help ease the transition from one grade to the next.
Each week will have the following activities for students to engage in:
|Students watch the instructional video||Students complete the independent activity||Class meeting on either Wednesday or Thursday||Teacher uploads video and activity for next week|
This program is not designed to be a summer school program required for students to move to the next grade level. Some Catholic schools may strongly encourage tutoring or continued learning and this program could fit that requirement. The Summer Learning program is not designed to be a summer school program that public school students could complete to successful matriculate to the next grade level.
Thank you for your interest in the Archdiocese of Baltimore Catholic Schools Summer Learning Program. Registration is now closed.
