Summer Grows as School Season

More districts in Michigan, anyway, are helping students continue to learn and improve their skills for the coming academic years.
Detroit Public Schools begins its six-week Summer School Academy on June 21. In Troy, summer school opens June 23 for high school students and June 27 for those in elementary and middle school. In Warren, the district is offering two three-week sessions for middle and high school students, starting June 27 and July 18.

While studying instead of sunning may sound dreary, summer school is becoming more the norm around Metro Detroit. Students are heading back to the classroom to avoid losing academic ground and get a leg up on their peers in the fall.

This Detroit News post leads with the University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy and photo-features students and teacher, Jeffrey Bowling.
