Students spend most of the year in school, so why do they need to learn in the summer? Studies show that students that continue learning over the summer are more successful in the fall. Over the summer student lose 25-30% of the information they learned in the school year over the summer (1
) Reviewing the previously learned material helps students retain the information. This helps them bridge any gaps in knowledge that may have appeared throughout the school year. If a student struggled with a subject, this is a great time to practice the skills they learned. Consistent learning over the summer makes transitioning to the school year much easier (2
