Summer Learning

Summer is a wonderful time for rest, recreation, and relaxation. However, time off from learning can take its toll quickly. Almost immediately. Our summer learning program is designed to give students and families the fun they deserve, while holding onto the concepts students and teachers spent so much time building throughout the school year.

ThinkStretch is more than a workbook. It’s an outcome-driven system that incentivizes students to maximize their school experience. Simple to start and easy to use, it’s equipped with everything you, your school, students and parents need to be successful.
