Extended School Year Program

Male student with female teacher swimming at private special education school summer program, Verona NJAcademy360 schools provides Extended School Year (ESY) services for students whose IEPs indicate it is needed.

ESY services are provided during the summer months for students who may need more continuous special education services to retain learning that might otherwise be lost during those months. Specifically, ESY is required if a student experiences problems with “regression,” the loss of previously-learned material after a prolonged interruption in learning. Problems with “recoupment,” the amount of time it takes for a student to regain lost ground after such an interruption, may also indicate a need for ESY services.

Academy360 ESY programs follow the same academic curriculum and program services offered during the regular school year, and also include additional recreational and “summer fun” activities.
