How Students Are Staying Busy at Pathways Academy This Summer

Flexible education is particularly beneficial for students during the summer, because they can continue their learning without disrupting any summer camps, sports or family travel plans. At Pathways Academy, we combine the flexibility of online classes with the social and learning benefits of in-person classes to provide a highly personalized educational experience for students in grades TK-12. 

Our offerings extend into summertime to enable students to catch up, get ahead, stay connected, or simply keep their learning skills sharp to avoid summer learning loss. Here’s what’s happening at Pathways Academy this summer. 

Summer Jumpstart Program

Our Jumpstart Summer Learning program began July 1 and runs for five weeks. There are many online options, with packets that students can complete each week to review concepts from the previous school year. They can also choose to simply extend their current curriculum through summer.

According to Oxford Learning, approximately six weeks of the fall semester are spent re-learning old material to make up for summer learning loss, and only two to three hours of studying per week can be enough to prevent any summer learning loss. The Summer Jumpstart Learning program helps students retain what they have learned so that they can have a strong start to the upcoming school year. 

In addition to the weekly packets, students in Bonsall, Calif. program can attend academic hour and take two enrichment classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays with credentialed teachers at our campus, further strengthening their summer education. In the Coachella Valley, our Jumpstart Summer Learning for high school students also includes a fitness program.

Extracurricular Activities

Students receive funds for enrichment for Pathways Homeschool, where they can take classes or lessons from approved vendors in their community. In Bonsall, many vendors are on campus on Tuesdays and Wednesdays this summer offering everything from public speaking and foreign language studies to tennis, improvisation and more.
