Learning Tools and Activities Reduce Summer Learning Loss For Students on Maui

During the Summer of 2018, Catapult Learning implemented its summer school programs in STEM, math, and reading to select students on the island of Maui. Through a partnership between Catapult Learning and the Hawaii Department of Education, students at Lihikai Elementary and Maui Waena Intermediate participated in programs designed to prevent summer learning loss.

Research shows that without the right blend of summertime instructional support and academic enrichment, many students risk losing so much ground that keeping up with their peers seems impossible. To prevent this educational slide, Catapult Learning’s summer program supports students in grades K-12 nationally by providing engaging and hands-on academic programs.

Through its summer programs, Catapult Learning aims to engage students, increase their motivation to learn, and improve opportunities for academic growth and success. The research-based programs also help support struggling learners with the foundational skills they need to be successful, through systematic and explicit instruction that reinforces essential skills and quickly brings students up to speed.
