GRASP is a summer math and reading correspondence program for children finishing grades Kindergarten through 8th. Teachers and curriculum professionals developed GRASP as a cost efficient substitute for traditional summer school. The program seeks to help students retain skills learned during the past school year by providing review exercises. Grades K through 3rd get packets, but Grades 4-8 can choose online or packets.
Children successfully completing (70% accuracy) at least seven lessons are awarded a certificate, and those successfully completing all nine lessons receive a medal.
There are over 10,000 students enrolled annually in the GRASP program. These students are from many different districts in Michigan. Also, many students from other states are also involved in GRASP.
