One such initiative that we are excited to announce is the first ever Horizon Science Academy Springfield Summer Institute.

What dates and times will this program run?
This program will run for three weeks:
Week 1 – June 7th through June 11th
Week 2 – June 14th through June 18th
Week 3 – June 21st through June 25th
On institute days, the program will begin at 10am and run through 2pm.
Because spaces are limited, we do ask that you not enroll your student unless you can commit to attending the entire program.
What subjects will the students receive instruction in during this program?
Students will receive instruction in English and mathematics only during this institute.
What is the deadline for application?
The application window closes Friday, May 7th. Due to planning needs, no applications will be accepted after this date.
Will transportation and food be provided?
Yes. All students will be eligible for yellow bus transportation for the duration of the program. Also, students will receive a free school lunch daily.
If my child fails the year, will completing this program mean he/she is promoted to the next grade?
While students who fail the academic year may be promoted after completion of the institute, promotion is not guaranteed. All students will complete a mastery assessment at the conclusion of the institute. This assessment will provide information as to your student’s academic level and will be used to determine whether promotion is appropriate.
