Schodack Families of K-8 Students,
We are excited to be offering our “Wildcat Summer Academy,” a summer learning program for students currently in grades K-8 (ie: in K-8 during the 21-22 year). This free program offers your student extra support during the summer months to reinforce their critical math, science and ELA skills. We do this through activities focusing on science, technology, engineering, art and math.
Wildcat Summer Academy Overview
See a full program overview of Wildcat Summer Academy here to determine if it’s right for your Schodack student. Wildcat Summer Academy runs from July 11 – August 5 and is from 8:00 AM – 11:00 AM.
The overall goal of this program is to reinforce over the summer what your student learned in the grade level they just completed. Additionally, we will prepare them for their upcoming grade level which will begin in Fall 2022. There will be a one-week focus on each of the following subjects: Math, Literacy, SEL (Social Emotional Learning) and Science, Technology & Engineering.
Transportation will be provided as needed to and from locations within the district. If your student will need transportation, they must be registered by Monday, July 4.
We know summer is a busy time, so there is no minimum attendance required. Registered students may attend as many weeks of the program as they are able to.
