Students entering Kindergarten through grade 8 engage in an academically challenging curriculum during the morning session of Summer Journey.
Students getting ready for Kindergarten participate in a theme-based integrated curriculum of reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. For those students entering first grade, the Early Learner Language Arts and Investigations programs include interactive lessons focusing on the reading and writing process and curriculum that combines math and science. For students entering grades 2–8, core academic courses are spread over four morning periods and include daily reading, language arts, math, and science or social studies courses. These core courses—developed for Primary, Elementary, and Intermediate levels—are aligned to Missouri Learning Standards and focus on student engagement through interactive, project-based lessons. Instructional Intervention for Struggling Learners.
For high school students, Summer Journey offers high school courses that can be a stand-alone program, or pair with local courses. This unique combination provides a quality summer school without comprising local requirements and preferences.
