1st Day of School is Monday, August 31, 2015
The curriculum at Hopkins Academy is designed to prepare students for a variety of post-secondary opportunities. Our classrooms and courses are rigorous and challenging and allow all students to learn at very high levels. Combined with Guidance Services, the sequence of courses in core content areas is purposefully designed to allow students to complete their secondary education career or college ready. With that goal in mind, summer homework is provided by Hopkins faculty, to families with students enrolled in Math, English Language Arts and Advance Placement courses for the purpose of providing those students with a well-designed connection to the curriculum of the first weeks of the upcoming school year. Summer assignments in these content areas address foundation skills from prior coursework, as well as
provide students initial exposure to new content and skills they will learn during the upcoming school year. Studies suggest that students who continue reading, writing, and practicing math skills backslide less than those students who stop practicing those skills over the summer months. While summer homework assignments are not required, families are strongly encouraged to keep their students connected to their learning, so that they are best prepared to take on the rigors and challenges of the next year's courses.
Please refer to Academy News to download and print individual course assignments. Additional information may also be available on the individual Teacher Webpages. Paper copies are available in the Main Office.
