IMANI offers a summer academic enrichment program that helps ease the transition from elementary to middle school. Students who take part in this program enter middle school better prepared to succeed in a more challenging academic environment.
During the 4-week session, students read and role play short stories from the 6th grade curriculum and learn new math concepts. By providing intensive academic support from certified teachers, the summer transition program also helps students retain skills mastered during the previous school year.
Studies have shown that many students, especially students of color, lose key skills over the summer.
The IMANI transition to 6th grade summer program is offered at no cost. Registration information for the Summer 2017 session will be posted in the spring.
