Beginning June 15, 2016 the 100 Black Men of Indianapolis will present the 30th installment of their flagship Summer Academy program. The program which runs until July 22 will cater to students in grades kindergarten – 8th by providing a variety of educational, cultural and social activities.
According to Johns Hopkins University, students lose “approximately 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months,” and also lose valuable reading skills. The 100’s Summer Academy is designed to work against this nationwide occurrence.
The program runs five days per week, 7:00am-3:30pm for six weeks. In addition to Indiana Academic Standard focused lessons in language arts and math, Summer Academy students will have the opportunity to participate in arts programming as well as robotics/STEM related activities.
This year’s Summer Academy will be held at IPS School 74 at 1604 10th St. in Indianapolis, IN. The enrollment fee per student is $200. For more information, contact The 100 Office at 317.921.1276.
General enrollment will end on June 6.
