Summer Enrichment

Summer enrichment is traditionally considered to be a great way to expose students to new or more advanced areas of learning during the long summer vacation break. The right kind of summer enrichment program can play another significant role in a student’s academic success and that is in helping prevent summer learning loss.

WHAT IS THE SUMMER OF INNOVATION?

Several organizations from across the Southern Tier have united to offer unique learning opportunities for children and young adults during the summer months. These organizations have a common goal of extending the traditional school year into a third summer semester. Our offerings have another purpose as well - to provide students with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills that are essential to their success in the future.
