YMCA - Huntington Summer Learning Academy

The Y’s Summer Learning Academies provide quality academic instruction blended with traditional summer activities. Academic instruction is delivered by certified, MA teachers while enrichment is led by trained YMCA professionals and paraprofessionals. We provide full day, hands-on learning opportunities for students which prioritizes the prevention of summer learning loss. Our academies provide students with opportunities to realize who they are and what they can achieve through academic support, health and wellness, and social/emotional learning opportunities. Y staff are trained in children’s developmental stages and diverse learning styles and use children’s progress reports and staff observations to differentiate programming. YMCA enrichment staff maintain strong communication with leadership and academic teachers to ensure all have an understanding of the students being served and how to facilitate and implement instruction. Our programs focus on 3 asset building themes: Building relationships with students; Creating supportive environments; Connecting to each school’s goals and priorities

Grades Served: 2021-2022 School Year Grades K1-7; 2022-2023 School Year Grades K2-8
