Summer Session Is Underway!

On June 3, Reach for Excellence welcomed 84 eager scholars for the six-week summer session. Over the summer, students take one hour each of math, language arts, social studies, and computer science each morning. Class size is small with 10-12 students, except for computer science where the full cohort of about 30 students is together. After a hearty lunch, students head to book clubs where they learn to discuss, analyze, and write about books and novels with relevant themes. 

Students spend the last hour of the day in an elective class of their choice before loading the buses, van, and cars to head home. Reach buses are busy during the summer, with over 80% of Reach for Excellence students using the transportation network. Reach operates six different bus or van routes during the summer, ensuring that transportation is not a barrier for students.
