Swope Summer Academic Camp-Upper Room

In 2007, a study by Johns Hopkins University ranked our Summer Academic Program as one of the best summer reading programs in the country. In 1999, we started with one church and 90 students. Today, the Upper Room offers an eight-week summer reading camp for over 2,000 high-poverty children who use the summer to make substantial academic gains. In a district where reading proficiency scores fall consistently below those of neighboring districts, children who participate in the program read as high as two grade levels above their peers.
