Summer Academy is a mandatory 3-week event for all EIP students. It runs from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm, Monday - Friday for 3 weeks starting the Monday after July 4th. The goal is to expose students to key knowledge in core academic areas and prepare students prior to returning to school in the fall. There are only 15 days of instruction, so every day is important.
