The Learning Center at Sportsmen’s includes the following programs:
School To Sportsmen’s is a partnership with local elementary schools to provide intensive support to a cohort of 75 students. School to Sportsmen’s runs Monday through Friday from 2:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Students receive academic support through one on one tutoring, project-based learning and online personal math and ELA curriculums. Enrichment opportunities include social-emotional learning, fitness, nutrition, gardening, music, art and of course, tennis. School to Sportsmen’s goal is to provide youth with quality out-of-school time experiences that develop skills such as perseverance, kindness and critical thinking and support success in school and beyond.
Summer Camp Academic Enrichment: includes structured reading time in addition to daily academic enrichment activities to address the skills dropoff that occurs if students are not actively engaged in literacy and math.
Summer Learning Project (SLP): Research shows that up to two-thirds of the achievement gap between low-income students and their higher income peers can be explained by unequal access to summer opportunities. Recognizing this issue, Boston, with the support of public and private funding, works to expand access to high quality summer learning programming. Co-managed by Boston Public Schools and Boston After School & Beyond, this approach draws on the strengths of teachers and leading program providers to provide a full-day, integrated learning experience. Summer Learning at STEC aims to prevent “summer slippage” and shares the common goal of academic progress in math and language arts, and improvement in the ACT skills.
