Overview of Summer Acceleration Academies
This page is now archived because it relates to information for a previous school year.
Over the past few months, schools convened their Recovery Community Corps (RCC) of teachers, staff, families, and community members to inform planning for this summer and beyond. You can now check out what your school’s Summer Acceleration Academy will look like this July and August.
Summer Acceleration Academies are forward-looking programs and designed to serve a targeted group of students at each school (approximately 10 to 35 percent) who require more focused support that provide both social emotional development and academic acceleration ahead of next school year.
Schools are reaching out to families directly to invite students to participate in a Summer Acceleration Academy. Find details for your school’s Summer Acceleration Academy by using the search box below. You can also find dates and time of the program in July or August, how many students can register, and more about the learning curriculum and fun activities planned.

|Ballou STAY||8||While all students need to be reengaged, we need to prioritize tier II and III students. While the tier system looks differently at Ballou STAY, we know that our 9th graders generally struggled with virtual learning and did not attend classes this past year. Additionally, students that were new to Ballou STAY in the fall of 2020 never had an opportunity to meet teachers and staff in person. These students missed the most valuable secret ingredient for success at Ballou STAY, building a relationship meaningful relationship with a caring adult. |
The primary objectives for our summer focus include the following:
Providing students with an enriching experience to introduce them to the Ballou STAY Way, develop habits of success, and create meaningful relationships with peers, teachers, and staff.
Facilitating a project- based learning experience that highlights the culture, political, social, economic history, and current events of the District of Columbia as an introduction to the academic style and expectation of Ballou STAY.
