Grand Rapids — Math and reading lessons for students to complete at home this summer are available through Grand Rapids Academic Summer Programs.
The nine-week program offered through Grand Rapids Public Schools aims to curb summer learning loss by providing refresher courses for students to complete over the summer. Students have the chance to earn a medal for passing all of the lessons, which they submit when complete by mail or at drop-off sites, said Lori Peterson GRASP coordinator.
The 49-year-old program is free to Grand Rapids Public Schools students and $38 for one subject and $68 for two for non-district students. More than 6,000 students, including 500 from GRPS, typically participate each summer.
Non-GRPS children should first check with their school to see if they participate directly with GRASP for a discount, Peterson said.
