A guest post by: Bob Kraft, Director of Program Growth at Sevenstar.
Why would you even want to entertain the idea of starting or expanding your summer school program? After all, summer is a time to slow down and recover from the school year! True. However, you may be missing a great opportunity to:
- Raise the academic bar at your school
- Build loyalty with current families/students
- Connect with new families/students to grow enrollment.
We understand there is a legitimate shortage of energy and resources during the summer. That is why we propose structuring a hybrid summer school where you offer a mixture of on-campus mini-events and a combination of online and/or traditional classroom academics. In other words, gain the benefits listed in the first paragraph above without taxing your staff and facilities.
