2016 Highlights

Summer Arts Programming Improves Academic PerformanceSummer Arts & Learning Academy

In 2016, we expanded our Summer Arts & Learning Academy (SALA) from one to four sites, providing arts-integrated literacy and math instruction to nearly 800 Baltimore City elementary students who were struggling academically. By infusing the arts and making learning joyful, our students not only avoided summer learning loss, but, in many cases, gained ground on their national peers in standardized testing. In fact, students who attended a majority of our program gained 1.8 percentage points on math assessments and improved writing skills by 38% in structure and 58% in content!

These findings, confirmed in two separate studies, show potentially groundbreaking progress in tackling summer learning loss, a chronic challenge facing public schools. Read more about the Summer Arts Academy and its impact.
