1. Know your family's important account access information.
2. NEW Families ONLY: Opt in for emergency communications.
3. Download the school year calendar and note important summer dates.
4. Start summer reading (and history, for middle school only) assignments.
5. Sign up for an American Academy summer camp.
We hope your kids can join us for one or more of the fun camps offered and run by American Academy teachers and staff! For more details and information about current summer camp offerings, visit the American Academy Summer Camp page on the website.
Participation in summer camps is open to ALL enrolled K-8 American Academy students who will be at least five years old by June 1 of this year. Parents of students new to American Academy in upcoming year must complete all registration paperwork before signing up for a summer camp. Students may attend a camp at ANY campus and are not limited to the campus where they attend school.
6. Find a summer tutor.
Want a little extra help with academics this summer? American Academy teachers* sometimes like to offer private tutoring sessions during the summer months. We have listed those teachers here for your convenience and to give our wonderful, hard-working teachers a helping hand.
*American Academy is not responsible for or involved in these private tutoring arrangements in any way. To make arrangements for summer private tutoring, parents must contact teachers directly using the contact info provided.
7. Buy school supplies.
**Admin would like to keep the lists as they are for in-person and remote learners. There will not be any shared supplies and the "extras" will be kept separate, but will be available when the kids need something (like some additional pencils or glue sticks). Not having them on hand at school will pose problems when a student unexpectedly needs an item. And for the remote learners, having the supplies at home will be beneficial, and bringing them to school when they resume in-person learning will be necessary. Hope that helps! If ordering online, the deadline is July 20. :)
8. Plan for TWO summer registration events.
American Academy families are required to participate in TWO summer registration events. Please mark your calendars and watch for more information to come during the summer.

American Academy All School Registration, August 5-6 (format/dates may change!)
