We cannot believe the GRA Summer Academy is already over. Without question, this year was one of the most successful summers we have experienced!
The group of young men that assembled 34 days ago did not know what to expect, but eagerly accepted each new opportunity and challenge that came their way. Students improved academically and socially these past five weeks. Rodrigo ‘16, Sid ‘16, Blake ‘10, and Colin ‘20 were nominated for Most Improved Student as they all showed significant progress in several different areas. Dawoud ‘17, Turki ‘19, Charles ‘17, and Sid ‘16 were nominated for the Outstanding Summer Student.

Also highlighted during yesterday’s evening celebratory ceremony was the videography’s class project “Dark Hand” – a definite must-see created by Frank ’16 and Jordan ’16. GRA Summer Academy Director David Scharping shares “I cannot say how thankful I am to have had the opportunity to lead and direct this year’s class of Summer Academy students! Safe travels to all of our families.”
We cannot wait until we begin classes again in September!
