2015 Summer Academy A BIG Success!
Summer Dreamer Academy 2015 was our most successful summer program to date. We had our highest attendance in years. We averaged about 60 students a day.
We were able to ensure the majority of our out if area dreamers attended. Dreamers had an intensive 4.5 week program where for the first time were split up by achievement level and able to build on skills they already had and will expose and prepare them for the upcoming school year. Dreamers attended science, math, language arts on a daily basis. Dreamers, also attended a daily class where they were able to work on skills that will help prepare them to be successful in high school, long before they are there.
Our goal for Dreamers this summer is start to thinking about the their futures past middle school and beyond. In the afternoons dreamers also got to attend a choice of dance or team sports where they got at least 30 minutes of physical activity. Dreamers also got to test out our newest enrichment our cooking class. Dreamers got to learn basics for kitchen safety and etiquette as well as test out recipes they could learn and take home to share with their families such as quesadillas, tacos, pancakes, scrambled eggs and smoothies just to name a few.
To conclude the summer 45 Dreamers were selected to attend our first annual college tour where they were taken on an overnight trip to visit 3 different universities in Central Florida (UCF, FAU, & Full Sail University) as well as Wonderworks and the Kennedy Space Center.
