Lake Pointe's program success depends upon mandatory summer work in language arts and math, for at least three reasons.
Efforts in these areas sharpen and exercise student skills, to avoid summer "brain drain"
The additonal reading of classic books increases the number of books added to the student's growing library of experience through the grade levels.
Math work allows families to discover any gaps or uncertainties in concepts and areas. This gives time for the student to build math muscle and confidence in expected skills before classes start.
Summer prep work allows teachers to jump right in to instruction and assignments, starting day 1 of the semester. This allows for LPA families and teachers to enjoy both deep learning and shorter semesters.
