Students in the Riverhead Central School District are spending a portion of the summer honing their academic abilities through a program that merges creativity with curriculum.

Held at Phillips Avenue School, the annual four-week, half-day program engages K-6 students in lessons that reinforce concepts in math, science, language, vocabulary, reading and writing. 

Younger students have delved into lessons on ecosystems, habitats and the life cycles of insects, while those in the higher grades are developing their STEM skills through coding sessions. 

Summer learning at Phillips Avenue also includes a special education extended learning program that reinforces all subject areas through an engaging curriculum.
