MPS Spring Break Academy

MPS will offer Spring Break Academy again, after a successful launch in 2014. Spring Break Academy is intended to help reduce the learning gap and accelerate academic outcomes for students. This is one of the ways we are redefining instructional time to ensure students have more quality time in the classroom.

The goal of the K-8 Spring Break Academy is to accelerate academic progress for qualifying students and provide an engaging, educational experience during the school holiday.

The academy will emphasize core subjects, while also providing enrichment opportunities that make learning exciting. Focus areas include reading and math, preparation and tips for test-taking, special science projects and developing the mindset to work hard and smart in school.  Students will also participate in engaging activities provided by Community Education.

Schools will contact families of students who are eligible for the academy.
