When it comes to packing, he or she may be focused on dorm décor and clothes, but there are a number of other intangible items your teen will want to remember to bring along when he or she begins the college journey.
The school year is packed for most children, so summer is a welcome break from the routine of homework and studying. One of the best summer pastimes and easiest ways to mitigate summertime regression is reading.
Anne Huntington joined Live on Lakeside on June 18, 2019 to discuss important ways to avoid the summer slide this year.
If your child is just finishing elementary school, you’ve probably heard it all year: the transition to middle school is a big one. Huntington Has some suggestions on how to make that transition easier for them.
It’s summer break and children around the country are celebrating. While your child certainly deserves a break from the daily grind of homework and studying, it’s important to keep that brain active to avoid regression, the loss of academic skills that is so common over long breaks from school.
Summer break is a perfect time for children to establish or renew a reading habit, which is why the Huntington Learning Center is launching its annual summer reading program, Reading Adventure.

If your teen is preparing to take the SAT or ACT anytime soon, there is no better time for him or her to register for a customized exam prep course now. Summer break is the perfect opportunity for students to focus on studying for the SAT or ACT, because their schedules are far less crowded with school and extracurricular activities. Your teen can work from a targeted schedule to put him or herself in the best position for the upcoming exam.
