After School Program
In the 2020 school year, the Afterschool Literacy Program, a 10-week long extension of the Summer Literacy Program, will be implemented in 10 elementary schools. This program consists of similar aspects of the Summer Literacy Program including one-on- one literacy mentoring.
Summer Reading Program
In partnership with Springboard Collaborative, A4 implemented an intense five-week literacy program for elementary students for the past three years focused on accelerating those who are below their reading grade level to proficiency and beyond. The Summer Literacy Program was comprised of daily reading instruction and workshops to coach parents on how to teach reading at home.
“ I have seen students accelerate their reading by one or more grade levels during the Springboard Collaborative Program.”Bethany Mertens, Teacher at McCardle Elementary School and A4 Summer Literacy Program
“Only two weeks into the summer literacy program and utilizing the tips from the family workshops, our child had a noticeable increase in comprehension, expression of speech and confidence In reading. This program has already helped us more than what we expected.”- Sandrina, Parent of Pre-K Student
