Summer Reading Programs

Many children lose ground in reading over the summer, and begin the school year at a level lower than what they achieved the previous year. Students in the Institute’s summer programs make substantial gains in reading skills and return to school with increased confidence and excitement about reading.

Reading is a deeply pleasurable and meaningful part of life.
