What is the Purpose of the SPS Saturday Academy?
The Purpose of the SPS Saturday Academy is to offer remediation and acceleration sessions for students. SPS teachers and staff will provide hands-on, interactive instruction and additional support based on recently taught content. Instruction will focus on reinforcing identified power skills within specific content areas' Standards of Learning.

Will SPS Provide Transportation?

Secondary students can attend two sessions during the day but must be dropped off and picked up at the appropriate session time. Violations of the drop-off and pick-up times will result in the student not being allowed to attend future sessions. Breakfast and a snack will be provided.

Will Make-Up Work Be Provided?
Make-Up Work will NOT be provided.
