Many students fall victim to the summer slide during the summer months. The consequences of this academic slide can last with students and hinder their academic success. However, with Fuqua School's Lower and Middle School's Summer Reading and Math program, students are able to consistently review and retain important reading and math skills to best prepare for the upcoming school year, improve his/her confidence their reading and math abilities, fill in the gaps of concepts not mastered during the school year and strengthen existing skills.
