Catapult Learning’s Suzanne DeZego, Vice President – Missouri, was recently quoted in a news article focusing on the return and growth of the Missouri Summer Journey program this year. The turnkey summer program provides complete support for districts, including lesson plans, enrollment toolkits, and professional development materials for teachers. The Principal at Confluence Academy Old North Leslie Muhammad, was also quoted about how the fun and engaging enrichment courses have brought back a laughter to the school that was missing during the pandemic.

About 650 students enrolled in Confluence Academy’s ‘Summer Journey’ summer-school program, which is a “significant jump,” compared to 2019 according to Confluence Academies CEO Candice Carter-Oliver.

The program, run by Catapult Learning, contracts with districts and school systems across the state. About 33,000 students are enrolling in Catapult’s summer program in Missouri this year.

“One of the things I really noticed was the laughter in the building,” Confluence Academy Old North Principal Leslie Muhammad said.

“We’ve had more students coming back during Summer Journey than we had at the beginning of the pandemic. Just hearing the laughter in the building, because they really enjoy the enrichment.”
