West Cook YMCA

Power Scholars Academy (PSA)



The Y is closing the academic achievement gap with programs that improve students’ educational readiness, engagement, and outcomes, while helping them grow emotionally and physically, too.

Third-grade reading skills predict high school graduation. That’s why the Y’s Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program, Power Scholars AcademyTM, helps students that are reading below grade level. The program focuses on phonics, writing, and reading to boost literacy skills, and also focuses on math skills, with enrichment activities to support physical and social-emotional growth.

In partnership with the River Forest School District 90 and Forest Park School District 91, Power Scholars AcademyTM is a five-week summer program designed to not only tackle summer learning loss in math and reading but to foster physical and social-emotional growth. Scholars receive strong academic support from local certified teachers, as well as an array of enrichment activities where students will be able to enjoy physical activity, cooking classes, improv/acting classes, Percussion music, and dance!

Program location: Field Stevenson Elementary School 925 Beloit Ave. Forest Park 60130

Time: 8:30am-3:00pm

Extended Care Available with the Y’s Day Camp- until 7pm for a small fee of $50/week (scholarship available)
