Summer Academy is five days a week from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for six weeks. Scholars are expected to attend all sessions for all four years of the program.
At Afterschool Academy, scholars complete their homework in a supervised study hall with support from teachers and volunteers. They then have dinner provided by Higher Achievement. After dinner, they work on a specific subject in small groups of two or three scholars, with a trained volunteer mentor. A scholar's schedule might be mathematics on Monday, literature on Tuesday, and a seminar on Thursday. For each subject, scholars work with the same small group and the same mentor throughout the year.
Both Afterschool Academy and Summer Academy take place at achievement centers, which are located in schools and run by staff members who work closely with the schools’ principals and teachers, as well as the scholars’ families.
