Beyond Classroom Menu
On average, children from low-income families can lose nearly three months of grade-level equivalency during the summer months each year. Over time, this "Summer Learning Loss" can add up and set some students years behind in their academic learning.
At DREAM, we are committed to giving every child the opportunity to succeed. Each summer, our students participate in a six-week program to ensure they maintain or increase their reading levels. Students participate in Harlem RBI’s nationally-recognized REAL (Reading Enrichment Academy for Learning) Kids Program, which has an academic enrichment program in the morning and an athletic/enrichment program in the afternoon.
