Summer Learning Day Across the U.S. on June 20

Summer Learning Day is a national advocacy day recognized to spread awareness about the importance of summer learning for our nation’s youth in helping close the achievement gap and support healthy development in communities all across the country.
Summer learning programs:
  • Maintain and advance participants' academic and developmental growth
  • Support working families
  • Keep children safe and healthy
  • Send young people back to school ready to learn
Summer Learning Day is supported by elected officials and policymakers, public agencies, nonprofit organizations, schools, universities, museums, libraries, and summer camps across the country. 

Whether you’re a community, summer program, school, or parent, there are many ways to celebrate Summer Learning Day!
