If you are thinking of enrolling your kids for a virtual (online) summer camp this year, and not sure about where to go, try Home Academy USA Summer Camp offerings. Its an affordable education and summer camp for kids in elementary and middle schools.
Given the Pandemic situation still not fully under control in many parts of the world, Kids are having to choose between online studies and schools. In 2020, lot of kids fell behind their grade level due to lack of attention on their part and parents inability to help because of their own challenges.
Student Grades Have Fallen in 2020-21
As per various report, Students’ grades for the 2020-21 academic year are being recorded and we are seeing stories from around the country about an unprecedented rise in F’s.
In Maryland: Failure rates in math and English jumped as much as sixfold for some of the most vulnerable students in Montgomery County, the largest system in the state. — The Washington Post
In Texas: Students across the greater Houston metropolitan area got F’s at unprecedented rates, with some districts reporting nearly half of middle and high school students failing in at least one class. — The Houston Chronicle
In North Carolina: 46 percent of students in grades three through 12 in Wilson County Schools failed at least one class — more than double the rate from the same period in fall 2019. — Associated Press
In Virginia: Fairfax County Public Schools, the largest district in the state, reported that the percentage of middle school and high school students who earned F’s in at least two classes jumped from 6 percent to 11 percent. — The Washington Post
How to get better grades for kids?
So, what is the solution? Ofcourse, the only way to get them back on track is to provide additional educational support and also mental help to keep them calm, and prepare for the next school year. The challenging part is also for kids moving from Elem to Middle, and Middle to High school as that transition has been remote for many of them and will be challenging if they go to the next level unprepared and nervous. Teachers and Schools have done their part. As a parent, its now our responsibility to help the kids bridge that gap. It can be challenging for working couple to take out time from their day to help kids with school work and learning, when they would rather spend quality time having fun with the family.
Home Academy USA comes to the rescue, with their affordable, unique and engaging model for kids of all ages and grades.
One of the solutions that Home Academy USA has come up with is to limit the number of students in their group classes to 4. This gives enough time for the teacher to focus on each and every student – whereas in the Public school online classes, a teacher has 15 students and can’t cater to every student’s needs.
The Summer Camps are 8 weeks long, lasting 1 month duration. Each summer camp has a competition that will give kids an opportunity to showcase their learning and win prizes at the end in the form of Gift Cards and Online goodies.
Here are some of the highlights of Home Academy USA’s Affordable Summer Camps for Kids grade 1 thru 9.
