Sessions offered through the SPS Academy are intended to provide remediation and acceleration. SPS teachers and staff will provide hands-on, interactive instruction and additional support based on recently taught content. Instruction focuses on reinforcing identified power skills within specific content areas' Standards of Learning. Make-up work and assessments will not be given.

Parents are responsible for the drop off and pick up of their child(ren). Students can be dropped off for breakfast at 8:45 AM and must be picked up at 12:00 PM. 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.

SPS Saturday Academy will also offer Virtual Tutoring Services through our instructional support partner - University Instructors/TutorU. Students will be able to register for live virtual sessions with qualified tutors in all available content areas. Students must register and have reliable internet to ensure a quality session.
