Don't waste your summer! Join the Adventure - It's FREE!

Thank you for your interest in attending our first Summer SOL Adventures day trip program, a locally grant funded program for Louisa County High rising 9-11th graders. The goal of this program is to offer LCHS students a FREE opportunity to expand their critical thinking skills, reading comprehension, and ultimately their confidence through a series of summer field trips led by LCHS instructors. Each adventure will foster a learning experience that will support necessary Virginia SOL skills, and help bridge the summer learning loss gap many students experience.

Realities of Summer Learning Loss

Did you know?
All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer.
Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer (www.summerlearning.org)
